The Minish Cap. They are found all over Hyrule in the game; these odd shells are more or less used solely by Link if he wants to collect the figurines made by Carlov in the game. Throughout his adventure, Link finds these items in various treasure chests and even in the Overworld after cutting some grass or breaking a pot; however, somewhere down the line, obtaining these shells becomes noticeably troublesome, and as such, Link may need to purchase and use a Bottle of Green Picolyte to make finding them in the Overworld much easier.
