"Say what?"  That's what I said! But B insisted on telling me about chirality because the speaker at his chemistry seminar had mentioned how it was related to sea shells. Are you ready for a little lesson?  Well, apparently the swirls we see on about 90% of shells  go to the right or clockwise or are "dexteral". And if you happen to have a shell that swirls to the left, it may be worth a pretty penny because this rare characteristic is sought after by many shell collectors.

So if you are anything like me, I started going through all my shell treasures, but no luck! 

So back they went to add a little beachy cheer next to my pumpkin spice candle.
