Turbo marmoratus, known as the green turban, the marbled turban or great green turban, is a large species of marine gastropod with a thick calcareous operculum in the family Turbinidae, the turban snails. [1]

The shells of these large sea snails have a very thick layer of nacre; this species has been commercially fished as a source of mother of pearl.
