The shells of angiosperm snails are delicate and greatly sought as decoration for jewelry. The magical properties of the live snails also make some species and breeds highly valuable as garden companions. The wealthy of Synara City love their gardens, and no garden is complete without a few bushels of rose or tulip snails exploring the new buds of a bush or fruit tree. Unlike the flowers they imitate, angiosperm snails bloom year-round, and will gladly stick around in the warmth of a well-made greenhouse. They eat very little once they reach their full size, and most Synarans consider them worth a few half-eaten sprouts of cabbage.
Wherever there are gardens, there are snails. However, exceptionally good gardeners around the Keep and Synara City might find special snails with delicate aragonite shells structured like flowers. Angiosperm snails come in many varieties, but the most sought after are the rose and tulip variety. These snails are known for having large beautiful blooms for shells, colored as brightly as the flowers they imitate. Each snail has a unique magical property, conveyed through various means. Nocture rose snails are the rarest of the rose snails, able to teleport at will to escape predators. Their shell can be used to create talismens which grant this ability to humans, but because of the rarity of these snails, such talismens are banned by the Keep and most other reputable establishments.
