Abalone comes from a large mollusk shell that is found in the shallow coastal waters. Usually, the material is brown to grey hue. It is known for its iridescent rainbow that shows different colors depending on the angle. Abalone shells are only found around the coast of New Zealand.
Abalone helps one become more in tune with their intuition to better express creativity. Often, abalone shells are used as a vessel for cleansing in a smudging ritual. Sage is burned inside the shell as an offering, therefore, Abalone represents Inventiveness and Offerings.
Abalone shells have been used for many years as a bowl to burn sage, wood, or sweet grass. They are also used for crafts, home decorating and used in jewelry.
