King Helmet Fun Facts
The King Helmet belongs to the same family (Cassidae) as the Conch Shell, which became the state seashell of North Carolina.
The King Helmet shell is found mostly in the Florida Keys and the Caribbean. Some varieties come from as far as East Africa.
The King Helmet shell is used by cameo carvers in Italy (a relief type sculpture that is made from the shell of the King Helmet).
It is rumored that Julius Caesar presented Cleopatra with a cameo sculpture as a sign of his love for her. (Caesar was about 52 and Cleopatra was about 21. We're not sure how we feel about that.)
