- Can be dated back to a prehistoric era
- Is referenced many times in the Bible (a symbol of both Saint James and Saint Augustine)
- Botticelli immortalized the shell in "Birth of Venus"
- Proust's favorite cookie was the Madeline - the perfect, French, scallop-shaped pastry.
- Visible on several royal coats of arms - heard of Princes William and Harry?
- Can be seen on just about every door in Nantucket in the form of a brass knocker
- And one of my most favorite varietals of scallop shell: The Verdura version
