Numbering the top row 1-6, left to right, and the bottom row 7-12, left to right ...

#1,5,6,9,and 10 appear to be Oliva sayana, Lettered Olive Shell, from Florida and nearby waters.

#12 is also an Oliva, and may be O. sayana, but it is too worn to tell for sure.

#3 is Oliva lignaria, Ornate Olive, a common Indo-Pacific species.

#2 is a single valve of Arcinella cornuta, Spiny Jewel Box, Southeastern United States.

#4 is a Conus, probably Conus furvus, called "Dark Cone" or simply Furvus Cone, Indo-Pacific.

#7 is an altered (cut or ground) Strombus urceus, Little Bear Conch, Indo-Pacific.

#8 is an immature Faciolaria lilium, Banded Tulip Shell, Southeastern U.S.A.

#11 is Babylonia areolata, Spotted Babylon Whelk or Areola Babylon Whelk, western Pacific.

All these species are common to abundant.
