Nature's Gifts

Nothing is more beautiful than mother nature. These Mediterranean miracles were captured in Lucite sometime in 60s or 70s. The top is a Murex shell (Fun Fact: the snail inside was the only source of the color purple prior to modern dye manufacture - used by Romans in their royal clothing) and the bottom - a white coral from a time before we had a clue to its impending extinction.
