Considered by many experts as the most beautiful land snail in the planet, its exclusive quality lies in its unique polychrome shells. The very name of these snails describes this special and distinctive feature: the word polymita is formed from two Greek roots—“poly” which means many and “mitos” which means thread or stripes.

The beautiful perfect lines come in many colours, except blue. Legend has it that a beautiful Indian girl was loved by an Indian cacique or chief and in order to win her love and not having pearls or diamonds to give her, he set out one day to capture the yellow of the sun, the green of the meadows, the brown of the mountains, the pink of flowers, the white of the foam at the crest of the waves…but night caught him unawares and he was not able to capture the blue of the sky, being satisfied with securing the black of night. This is why there are no shades of blue in polymitas.

Polymita species exhibit shades of red, purple, lilac, pink, yellow, orange, brown, green, white, black, gold, ochre and terra-cotta, among others. One of the most beautiful images of our natural landscape is a tree with hundreds of polymitas resting on its trunk. During prolonged drought, these land snail form colonies where they aestivate very close to one another.

Although most polymita shells have brilliantly coloured stripes, some are almost monochromatic with faint lines of the same colour. Their perfect spirals are reminiscent of nature’s most mysterious phenomena—the rainbow, sea waves, tornadoes, clouds…

which remind me the mystic and the spirit of the Cuban Ladies...
