More about Abalone
Ready to shine? Abalone beads are a gorgeous, iridescent rainbow of electric blues, greens, grays and pinks on all sides. The beautiful colors are outlined by undulating lines of dark brown.
Abalone are a group of marine snails with flattened, spiral-shaped shells that live clinging to rocks beneath the ocean’s surface.
The innermost layer of abalone shell is composed of a substance called nacre, or mother of pearl. Abalone's mother of pearl is highly iridescent. This is what separates it from the typical milky white mother of pearl of other species.
Nacre is also known for being exceptionally strong. It is made of microscopic tiles of calcium carbonate that are stacked like bricks. The iridescent appearance of nacre is due to light bouncing between those layers of calcium carbonate.
Metaphysically, Abalone shells are used to enhance calm and to encourage peaceful transitions.
