"We can use this to call the others. Have a meeting. They'll come when they hear us-" ( Golding 16). The significance of finding the conch is that it created law and order.

" Him with the shell. Ralph! Ralph!" ( Golding 22). The conch gave power to the beholder.

" The conch exploded into a thousand white fragments and ceased to exist" ( Golding 181). This marks the end of civilization on the island. From then on, the whole island was full of savages.
