I know I'm always rooting for my mystery snails :) (pomacea bridgesii) but they may be your best option. They are widely available and inexpensive. The jade color looks somewhat similar to the Neothauma tanganicensis but I can't find a picture to see what the spiral is like. There are also chestnut and chocolate colors, as well as what people call black, olive and wild-type colors. They all get to be golf-ball sized. Good luck with your choice.
