Abalone Gemstone Properties


Abalone General Gemstone Details

ˌa-bə-ˈlō-nē, 
Abalone & Mother of Pearl

Stone of Enhanced Stability

Often the names: Abalone & Mother of Pearl are interchangeable to most people. But just as the Ammonite & Ammolite are one and the same yet two separate things entirely; as is Abalone and Mother of Pearl.

Abalone is a beautiful shell showing a play of bright blues, black, brown and turquoise across a polished surface…a dark rainbow of colors say some. Abalone shells are the outer housing, or exoskeleton of sea-creatures, and they are a wonderful vessel in which to find Mother of Pearl.

Mother of Pearl is a layer of light colored lines inside the shells of mollusks in general, creating a protective shield.  Known to some as the ‘nacre’ such as on a pearl; it is the shiny layer that forms inside of the shell.

Pearl oysters and Abalone are known to be wonderful sources for Mother of Pearl. Both will be addressed here as the same basic ‘gemstone’ as they both carry the same properties; just as the Ammonite and Ammolite; with very few variations.
