Red Abalone Shell Full Polished 6" for Smudging or Decor #SK3985

Abalone Shells are "bio-crystals" that come from living organisms instead of being formed in the earth's crust. They're made up of nacre (aka Mother of Pearl), which is Aragonite or Calcites crystals layered with proteins secreted by sea animals; as this shell grows it deposits many layers over time creating vibrant rainbows when light refracts through them at different angles - giving each piece an iridescent color! Native Americans have known about its healing properties for thousands upon millennia since they used these shells to adorn themselves, make tools & currency but also witness rituals during sacred occasions such as celebrations where everyone feels better simply because of being able to experience some peace while out enjoying nature.
When you are planning a special ritual (New House, Birth, Marriage or another milestone event) then splurge on a True Treasure of a Shell for your Ceremony. How beautiful and sacred a bio-crystal this is, ready to capture and safely contain your burning ritual offering of sage, sweetgrass, incense, herbs or Palo Santo. Shells are a traditional way to use the Fire Element safely and securely.
