ABALONE | “the Sea Ears”

February 5, 2017

Abalone is a mollusk found in warm seas that is well known because of its bowl like shell that is lined with highly iridescent nacre. Nacre, which is also known as mother-of-pearl, is the same substance that is found on the outer coating of pearls.  The abalone shell lining varies in colour and can appear anywhere from a light grey to a deep blue.  Many abalone shells can be said to be very reminiscent of the seas from which they are found.  This is because the green-blue hues and brown-black lines found within the shell suggest the movement of the ocean waves.
