These medium abalone shells are range between 5 1/2 and 7 inches across. Also available in small and large sizes. Stand not included.
This beautiful abalone half-shell is a natural ash-catcher that reminds us of the element of water. The interior is iridescent with red and blue highlights. Gathered from the Pacific Ocean in an ecologically sound manner.
While smudging, always line the inside of the shell with a heat barrier such as sea salt, incense sand, unscented kitty litter, or small pebbles. Place your lit material on top of this heat barrier.
Historically, abalone shells have been used for jewelry, candle holders, talismans, and as a source of calcium supplements. We do not recommend grinding up these abalone shells for medicinal use, there are better alternatives and they are too pretty to break apart!
