A Note About Abalone Shell
Abalone shell is an organic gem that shows iridescent blues, greens, and purples. Shell jewelry is some of the oldest known decorations used by early humans. The first humans began a tradition of craftsmanship that has been perfected over the centuries.
Abalone Shell Color
Abalone shell occurs in a variety of iridescent colors. The primary range consists of moody blues, mysterious greens, and royal purples. Shells can potentially be nearly any color of the rainbow. Despite this, blues, greens, and purples remain the most common and widespread.
Abalone Shell Clarity
Abalone shell is a translucent-opaque gemstone. The surface of the shell should be smooth after polishing, and free from blemishes. Rough spots, nicks, and chips can all lower its value. Shells take on a glossy luster after polishing.
