Trochus is a genus of medium-sized to very large sea snails. They are marine gastropod molluscs in the family Trochidae, the top snails.

Trochus niloticus, for example, is a very large (up to 13 cm) Indo-Pacific top shell, which has a very thick inner layer of nacre. This species is commercially exploited to make mother of pearl buttons, mother of pearl beads, pendants and so on. In 2006, for example, the sole commercial export of the Wallis and Futuna Islands was 19 tons of Trochus shells valued at US$122,000.[1]

Description: Sea snails in the genus Trochus have shells that have a conical spire and a flat base. The interior of the shell is pearly and iridescent because of the nacre.
