"I collect those Mysterious Shells you've seen scattered all over the place. If you bring those shells to me, I'll trade you these figurines I have made."

Mysterious Shells are quest items from The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap. These blue shells, presumably from a crustacean, can be traded to Carlov in Nitendo for Figurines. They can be found in Treasure Chests, hidden beneath grass, bushes, and rocks, be given to Link as rewards, or be purchased from Stockwell in the Hyrule Town Shop. Only 999 Mysterious Shells can be carried at one time. Link can use Green Picolyte to briefly increase the number of Mysterious Shells he finds.

After Link manages to collect all of the figurines, Mysterious Shells will cease to appear at all in the land of Hyrule, and their entry on the Quest Item Subscreen will be replaced with the Carlov Medal.
