By this point in the novel, the conch has come to represent something only to Piggy. The twins, Piggy, and Ralph are the only boys left with the democratically elected leader Ralph. The one thing they have of value to the other boys is Piggy's glasses. Jack and his new tribe need Piggy's glasses to start a fire. At the end of chapter 10, they forcibly take Piggy's glasses. Piggy thought they wanted the conch. Both the glasses and the conch are important both practically and symbolically in this chapter.
