Abalone Shells | Tons of Soul
Abalone Shells are approximately 3.5 inches.
Abalone Shell (as well as most sea shells) is a “Bio-Crystal” meaning it is created by a biological organism rather than formed in the earth from inert minerals, like carbon or silicon. Shells are made of nacre (aka Mother of Pearl) which is Aragonite or Calcite crystals layered with proteins secreted by the sea animal. As the Abalone grows it deposits multiple layers over time creating bright rainbow irrideccent colors when light refracts the stacked microscopic layers. Abalone is ideal for jewelry and has been worn for thousands of years by Native Peoples as adornment, tools, currency and in sacred rituals.
