Wholesale commercial grade with natural imperfections, polished green abalone seashells, Haliotis fulgens
, and red abalone shells, Haliotis corrugata
, measure approximately 5 inches to 5-7/8 inches long. Pink abalone have a highly corrugated shell and because of this they have an alternate name, the corrugated abalone. The rough outer layer of the green abalone and red abalone has been polished exposing beautiful greens, silvers and undertones of blues in these shells. The highly iridescent inner layer of the shell of green abalone and pink abalone has traditionally been used as a decorative item in jewelry, buttons, and as inlay in furniture, knife handles, and in musical instruments such as guitars, etc. The shell is also polished and sold for seashell decorating and used in shell crafts and making inlaid knife handles, tables and jewelry.
These are commercial grade shells and will have natural imperfections from living in the ocean and aging. These shells may have natural scars, indentations, chipped edges and other blemishes.
