The abalone is a type of marine sea snail in the mollusk family, the same group as clams and oysters. These beautiful treasures are commonly used for smudging but can be used for anything you like, displaying your jewellery, holder or use to burn your herbs and incense. Inside each shell is a dazzling layer of mother-of-pearl, giving it a colorful and mesmerising iridescent allure.
From a spiritual perspective, abalone shells represent an offering from the ocean imbued with the nurturing energies of the water element: empathy, compassion, intuition and the divine feminine—which also makes them ideal altar tools for anyone looking to embody those qualities.
When smudging you can use a natural substance like sand or sea salt to protect the shell from getting too hot and burning away the stunning pearly layer inside.
Abalone shells are sustainably farmed and hand-selected for their natural beauty, which means no two are alike.
