This is a Ceremonial Tibetan Turquoise and Silver Conch Shell Horn Trumpet. Conch shells can be used as wind instruments. They are prepared by cutting a hole in the spire of the shell near the apex and then blowing into the shell as if it were a trumpet, as in blowing horn. Sometimes a mouthpiece is used, but some shell trumpets are blown without one. In Tibetan Buddhism the Tibetan conch shell has been incorporated as one of the Eight Auspicious Symbols. A shell is often referred to in the West as a conch shell, or a Chank shell. This shell is used as an important ritual object in Hinduism. The shell is used as a ceremonial trumpet, as part of religious practices, for example Puja. The Chank trumpet is sounded during worship at specific points, accompanied by ceremonial bells and singing. Also, the sound of the conch is believed to drive away the evil spirits. A fabulous pendant of Tibetan art and culture that would be beautiful in a necklace or for your home.
