Abalone shell piece

Approx size: 2 1/4" x 1 1/8" x 3-11 mm, 19.8 g

This is a piece of Abalone we purchased from a Gem and Mineral Club 20 years ago. The abalone was from a 1950's collection of shells, gathered prior to the current law establishing the rules of selling abalone in California. Make it into a pendant and you will have heads turn while you are wearing it or keep it as a specimen.

I hand polished this piece in my shop.  If you plan on polishing abalone use proper breathing protection and lots of water, the dust produced by Abalone is like a prism which can scar you lungs.  This could produce a disease called Silicosis. 

Folklore, Legend & Metaphysical Properties
Abalone is a shell from the family that includes clams, scallops, and others.

Abalone is purported to be especially useful for handling and calming emotional situations, and be very soothing to the emotions. Having abalone nearby when working through an emotional situation with someone is said to be beneficial, and to promote cooperation. Abalone can also stimulate psychic development and intuition, and promotes imagination in a healthy way. Abalone is associated with the first three chakras. Mystical Lore and Folklore says that abalone is helpful for arthritis and other joint disorders, muscle problems, the heart, and digestion.
