Abalone Shells (Large)
"The inner lining of an Abalone shell is composed of Nacre, also known as Mother of Pearl, which has beautiful iridescent colors and markings. Abalone Shells are oval-shaped with natural imperfections such as grooves, and holes which are respiratory apertures that allows a living Abalone to vent water from its gills. The coloring varies from shell to shell.
The pastel rainbow colors of the Abalone shell enhance feelings of peace, beauty, compassion, and love. Work with the Abalone shell when you are facing tough emotional issues. Abalone will soothe the nerves and encourage a calm demeanor. Abalone shell helps to gently open our psychic and intuitive connections.
Abalone Shell is an excellent companion when needing guidance in relationships. It enhances the four C's - communication, cooperation, commitment, and compromise - which lead to harmony and balance. Abalone shell enhances expression, in both word and deed. It allows us to understand both sides of any issue by placing us in the other person’s "shoes".
The Abalone shell has been tossed and turned in the ebb and flow of the ocean for many years. Through this process, its true beauty shines through. The Abalone shell is a perfect gift for those who have survived traumatic experiences, to let them know that while they may have been tossed and turned themselves, in the end, their true beauty shines for all to see.
Abalone Shells are a great water element that can be used in the practice of Feng Shui or if you prefer, used as a Smudging bowl to burn sage. They also make beautiful decorative pieces or a nice catch-all dish for small crystals or jewelry.
Physically, an Abalone shell strengthens the immune system, energizes the body, and aids in the assimilation of proteins. It can also benefit athletes by increasing strength and stamina."
