Beautiful King’s Crown seashells from Sanibel & Captiva.

“Melongena corona Usually found among the mangroves and oyster beds. Up to 4″ in size.

Tends to be more of a bay shell because of its habitat. This is not usually a shell to be found along the beach unless you are near a pass of other area where oyster bars and mangroves are near.

Color form and spine structure can vary greatly from one area to the next.”  Source:  King’s Crown.
