Our Abalone Shells come natural and untreated. You can see the iridescent mother-of-pearl on the inside of the shell. You can also see the rough spot where the snail was attached to the shell. The shell comes with a line of small holes that allowed the snail to breathe. The outside of the shell appears rough and bumpy. These are natural products, so expect variations in color and size.
Native Americans of the west coast have harvested Abalone for centuries. They consumed the meat and used the shells to make Beads, fishhooks and decorative items.
