Alternative Imagination Abalone Shells
A beautiful addition to home decor, and a functional flame-proof piece for smudging rituals and more!
Each shell has been polished and heat-sealed with a resin in order to protect its beautiful, natural colors. It is still safe to hold hot incense.
Abalone shells are created by nature! Please expect unique variations in color, pattern, and size from the images.
Hand Selected Quality
Each Abalone Shell of Hand Selected Quality has been chosen by a member of our Alternative Imagination team to ensure the best possible quality of the shell.
These shells are near-perfect. They are selected to be as free from chips, holes, black marks, and cracks as possible.
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 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!
