Nautilus shells are splendid seashells which are very popular collectibles among collectors. The shell is the remain of a Nautilus cephalopod. There are various Nautilus species in the world, the most known are Nautilus pompilius, the chambered Nautilus shell, and most of them are now rare in the wild. Nautilus shells are splendid natural objects, they can be used in decoration as they are, but carved nautilus shells and nautilus shell cut in half are also very much appreciated. Nautilus shell fossils from an ancient species can also be found. Papered Nautilus shells are different, they are eggcases of the argonaut female, another cephalopod.
