You probably would have known the conch shells as home to sea borne marine snails. But in India, whose map itself is in the shape of a conch shell, the conch shell is revered and used for divine purposes.
In the long and luminous spiritual tradition of India, the role of conch shells is incredibly significant but one that is hardly known to the outer world. Conch Shells are a divine gift and a treasure to mankind which preserve the bhakti bhava (prayerful attitude) of mankind. Conch Shells promote, preserve your truth and integrity. Conch Shell abhishekams have been practised for many centuries to obtain incredible secretive material and spiritual blessings. This is a closely guarded spiritual secret known only to discerning few.
The spiritual science behind the Conch Shell Abhishekam is that all the sacred sounds including the greatest mantra, ‘Om’, the sound that created this entire universe is present in the Conch Shell. The sacred mantras and Vedas are absorbed by the Conch Shells and presented to humanity. If your home or shrine uses Conch Shells for prayer, the entire area is purified and becomes a place of happiness, divinity and incredible prosperity.
Vedas state that Banker in Heaven, Kubera lives in the Conch Shell along with Mahalakshmi. When you regularly conduct Abhishekams and worship using the right threaded Conch shell known as ‘Valam Puri Sanku’, you receive great material blessings.

Though to our intellect, this might look out of bounds, it is very true as per Siddhas.
