Default Conch Shells

Hi, new cruiser here with a question ...

Is it okay to pick up conch shells off the beach to take home as souvenirs?

If you don't mind having bad luck for the rest of your life. Conch (the people of key west) consider it bad luck to have a conch shell in or near their homes.

Yes BUT. I highly recommend against it as it may contain part of the dead conch and trust me, you do not want that smell in your luggage. Best if you just buy one from one of the local souviner places. The thoughly clean and disinfect them which really is a chore and not something you yourself really want to try and do.
