For as long as abalone has been nourishing human appetites, their mother-of-pearl bearing shells have been used in ritual ceremonies to repleanse our souls as well. Abalone are a type of mollusk like clams and oysters except inside their flat one sided, ear shaped shells, they have tentacles and feet. In Native American culutres, the abalone shell was used as a smudge bowl to burn sage in. They believed that the abalone and sage together would carry their messages to Heaven. Protection and emotion balance, it brings with it a natural shielding that blesses the wearer with peace and tranquility. Abalone healing is particulary associated with emotional healing, and like water, it washes away the flames of emotional strife.
