Turbinella Chank shell from Andaman Sea with custom made stand.

The Chank shell is sometimes known as the Sacred Chank because of its importance in both Hindu and Buddhist religions, where it is used as a ceremonial trumpet and as a libation vessel. However, nowadays the Chank shell is also used by lapidaries to make ornaments and by interior designers for home decoration. The first photo is group display.
