Abalone Shell – Natural Premium
We offer Premium Natural Abalone Shells, a beautiful Blue Shell that comes without chips or rough edges. They have a lovely shine to them, though they are not polished or coated. You will find both sides smooth and free of barnacles. They vary in size from 4″ to 6″.
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.
Many people use a natural Shell in Smudging ceremonies to burn Sage or Incense. 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.
