These beautiful shells are made by Mother Nature and are, therefore, naturally imperfect. They were also, well, used by their previous tenant. Please be aware of this before you order. They are 5"-6" long and vary in size and shape.
Abalone shells are thick, bowel-shaped seashells lined with iridescent, mother-of pearl colors. They hold the energy of the sea and, after being protected by a lining of sand, are a receptacle for smudge stick ashes or if not used for smudging, the shell can hold crystals or jewelry.
Never put a charcoal directly on a shell or bowl. They get very hot and can burn you or the table it's on. Always use about 2" of sand in your shell or bowl as a heat buffer.
