Some Abalone Info:
Abalone Shells are a naturally occurring shell, coming from marine gastropod molluscs. The shell forms in a low spiral, originating from one spot toward the bottom, with respiratory pores (air holes) along the outer edge.
The Beauty of Abalone
The exterior of the abalone is a sturdy, rough calcium carbonate, sometimes with evidence of barnacle friends!
The interior of the abalone is Mother-of-Pearl (nacre) which gives the abalone their pearly, iridescent colors.
These colors range from pink, blue, green, purple, gold, and white. Sometimes all in one shell!
Move the shell around in any light and watch the colors change!
