Picked up on the beach in Port Elizabeth, so unusual to find a paper nautilus intact. Ocean treasure!

  1. HI I HAVE ALSO FOUND A PAPER NAUTILUS ON THE BEACH IN PORT ELIZABETH. IS IT VERY RARE AND IS IT WORTH ANYTHING..?

    • Hi Chantelle
      The paper nautilus shell is so fragile and paper thin that it is rare to find in one piece or in good condition on the beaches. I don’t think that are worth a lot of money but a shell collector ( or Google!) should be able to assist you. I have collected shells for many years merely for their natural beauty.
