A majority of conch shells open on the left side, i.e., they have formed anti-clockwise. In contrast, those that open on the right side, i.e., formed clockwise, are rare, but very auspicious to keep in homes. These are expensive. It is believed that Goddess Lakshmi resides permanently in white conch shells that open on the right side (Dakshinavarti shank). Both, Goddess Lakshmi and the right-sided conch shell have their origin in the sea and are believed to have the same father. A right-sided conch shell is considered the younger brother of Goddess Lakshmi.
It is believed that whoever owns a pair of right-sided conch shells shall always hold exalted positions and be successful in whatever he does. Misery and failure keep away. Daily reverence and methodical offering of prayers to it shall bring success and fulfilment. When it is placed in a shop, it promotes success in business. At home, it attracts wealth and happiness.

भारतीय संस्कृति में शंख को महत्त्वपूर्ण स्थान प्राप्त है। ब्रह्मवैवर्त पुराण के अनुसार, शंख चंद्रमा और सूर्य के समान ही देवस्वरूप है। इसके मध्य में वरुण, पृष्ठ भाग में ब्रह्मा और अग्र भाग में गंगा और सरस्वती का निवास है। शंख से शिवलिंग, कृष्ण या लक्ष्मी विग्रह पर जल या पंचामृत अभिषेक करने पर देवता प्रसन्न होते हैं।
