The pearly or chambered nautilus has a small coiled shell that can grow to about 10" in diameter and consists of 36 chambers. The nautilus lives in the last chamber. The chambers are connected by a tube that absorbs gases allowing the shell to act as a float.
Nautilus shells are very popular among shell collectors. These pearlized or polished shells are polished revealing the beauty that lies under the natural color of the shell.
