Hard to tell w/o seeing the shell. I have a green star snail that is that size, but I doubt that is what it is...Probably a margarita snail like stated. They are usually coraline covered.

It's not a margarita snail because margaritas have round shells and this snail has a cone shaped snail. The only two other choices possible is Astraea and Cerith. It's most likely a Florida Cerith because he stated it as 2-3" big. Astraeas don't get that large.

The shell is definitely shaped like an astrea though, not a margarita.
