A nautilus shell is an item that is used for crafting conduits.
Nautilus shells can be obtained as a 'treasure' item from fishing.
3%[Java, and Legacy Console editions only] or 8%[Bedrock Edition only] of Drowned will spawn with a nautilus shell that will always be in their offhand, and they will always drop it when killed, since drowned always drop equipment in their offhand.
Nautilus shells can be obtained as an item from treasure chests.
