Conch shells have great spiritual significance in Tibet,Nepal,India and many of the neighboring countries.
The link is absolutely OVERFLOWING with information on how revered and important these shells are in Buddhist/Hindu cultures. I posted just a few bits and pieces of info below from this link.


....."Conch Shells - Truth, Bhakti and Selflessness (Tyaga)
Conch Shell = Satyavati, the Embodiment of TRUTH (Satya), said Sathguru Venkataraman. People with names such as Satya, Satyavati, Satyavalli, etc. must do puja with conch shells daily. 3
Amongst the spiritual aids that promote bhakti (devotion), conch shells are at the forefront, said the Sathguru. 3

Conch shells, both idam puri (left) and valam puri (right), are physical representations of life forms that attained high spiritual states by leading selfless lives. 3

Conch Shells - OM, Mantras and Spiritual Purification
Within conch shells, the divine Om sound and many other beejakshara mantra sounds are always present. 1
Conch shells attract and absorb the celestial Veda Mantra Sabda sounds and present them to us. 1

If conch shells are used in a house in the proper spiritual way, the entire environment of the house can be purified easily.................................................

Conches are spiritual aids that promote bhakti and spirituality. They are also spiritual solutions for removing many kinds of "doshas" (afflictions).

Placing vibhuti sacred ash and kumkuma vermilion in conch shells blesses the house with auspiciousness and gives longevity to the spouse. 5

Conches can give the blessing of truthfulness particularly to those in professions where lying is common, such as lawyers and judges. 5

Conch shells can reduce NEGATIVE VIBRATIONS in their vicinity and give steadiness of mind. 5

Sathguru Venkataraman said that a conch shell is Omkara Naadha Karuvoolam - a treasure chest of the original Omkara sound of the beginningless beginning. Thus blowing a conch shell even once can fill a place with Omkara Shakti - the power of OM, he said.

Blowing the conch shell is itself a good pranayama yoga practice, particularly if the special pranayama conch shell is used.

Regularly blowing the conch shell in worship can help one get rid of the urge to smoke.

The sound of OM can purify thoughts and it is this divine sound that fills a conch shell. Thus a conch shell helps purify one's thoughts, said Sathguru Venkataraman........."
