In ancient Greek and Roman times, sea shells were often associated with fertility and love goddesses. To later Christian groups, the scallop shell was a symbol of baptism, pilgrimage, and St. James. In Chinese Feng Shui practice, sea shells can represent harmony, the element of earth, and the protection of home.
