Sea Shell | Pearl Abalone (4"-5")

Regular price $12.00

The shell of the abalone is exceptionally strong and is made of microscopic calcium carbonate tiles stacked like bricks. Between the layers of tiles is a clingy protein substance. When the abalone shell is struck, the tiles slide instead of shattering and the protein stretches to absorb the energy. Our abalone shells are polished, beautiful and iridescent.

Like all of our seashells, this is a real & natural item
