Hello !
I visited Venezuela in the past once and I had the chance to snorkle a little. I found several nice shells during the day. I did not visited Margarita island though. I am mainly specialized in cones and cowries. The only shell I can identify is the small TRIVIA on the bottom right : Pusula pediculus (Linnaeus, 1758) Coffeebean Trivia.
look there : http://www.gastropods.com/3/Shell_243.shtml

Happy Shelling,
DAVID

Hello. Welcome to the site.

All the shells except the one David identified are in the family Marginellidae. The first one (upper left) appears to be Persicula porcellana. The next one is a Prunum species, but too worn and faded to be sure of the species. The other five are all Persicula interruptolineata.
