The Nautilus,, is the best-known species of nautilus. The shell, when cut away reveals a lining of lustrous nacre and displays a nearly perfect spiral. The shell exhibits counter shading, being light on the bottom and dark on top. This is to help avoid predators because when seen from above, it blends in with the darkness of the sea, and when seen from below, it blends in with the light coming from above. Nautilus shells were popular items in the Renaissance period and were often mounted by jewellers on a thin stem to make extravagant nautilus shell cups, mainly intended as decorations rather than for use. Small natural history collections were common in mid-19th century Victorian homes, and chambered nautilus shells were popular decorations.
