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.

The shells of these large sea snails have a very thick layer of nacre; this species has been commercially fished and the snail inside makes a good food source for many island people. This shell is also used for mother of pearl jewellery and as a beautiful decorative feature.
