    Seashells

    My gf was given a seashell by one of our tour guides. She wants to take it back with us but will they let it through customs at the airport? I read some article that natural fibers, hay, and seashells were not allowed. But, it wasn't an official website so I'm not sure how accurate it is. Has anyone here taken back a seashell to the U.S.?

    Sea shells and sand
    Although you are allowed to bring back sea shells and items made thereof, they must be clean and free of sea life, soil or sand. The importation of sand is not allowed.
