  • About the Gemstone

    Abalone shell is a highly iridescent shell composed of nacre (mother-of-pearl) with a strong range of changeable colors. As light bounces off the nacre, a light show of turquoise, peacock green and blue to rose pink, purple and gold shimmer is revealed. It has been used by the Native American tribes of North America for over 10,000 years for use in decorative items. 


    There are over a hundred varieties of abalone worldwide. They are found in the cold coastal waters of New Zealand, South Africa, Australia, western North America, and Japan. 


    Abalone is a variety of mollusks or sea snails with feet and tentacles. Prized as a delicacy, they grow by feeding on seaweed such as kelp. The different varieties of seaweed create different colors in their shell as they grow. Concentric rings on the outside of an adult abalone shell are evidence of the changes to its seaweed diet.


    This ear-shaped shell is made up of microscopic pieces of calcium carbonate, stacked one on top of the other. Each of these layers has a sticky protein material between them making it exceptionally strong.   Abalone mollusks can repair minor damage to their own shells as well caused by otters or humans trying to pry them off rocks. 


    Abalone’s Mother-of-Pearl is a symbol of strength and healing.
