Abalone shells are often used for
smudging ceremonies by the Native Americans in the United States and
The shells are 4 - 7" (10 - 17.5 cm)
from front to back (longest side).
The polished abalone
shells have been highly polished to a beautiful sheen inside and out. It takes
about four hours to polish one shell. These are beautiful decorative
pieces or they can be used for inlay on rifle stocks, knives, and other items. The colors are not color fast and exposure to bright light will cause them to fade.
