Abalone is a type of mollusk, similar to a sea snail, found in the ocean off the west coast of America, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and Japan. This shell is formed by calcium carbonate that surround the mollusk, and it has a very colorful iridescence. As a natural shield, it is said to provide safety and healing, and help with self-expression.
