Red and Jade Abalone
These abalone shells have the same breathtaking vibrant colours of the Australian coastline at the top end. Brilliant rusty reds and cool turquoise greens combine to make a truly spectacular display. Underneath, the pearly translucency catches the sunlight and dazzles. These shells are a natural, unpolished finish and will make an amazing display in any Aussie sea lovers home.
Between 8cm - 9.5cm in size these are an incredible addition to any shell collection or display as a eye-catching stand-alone specimen. Each and every one is unique in colour and pattern.
Mindful Sourcing of Shells and Marine Life:
We support the company that supports the oceans. My supplier collects shells that are abundant, commercial-grade shells. The shells we sell have originally been collected for food or are the by-product of licensed fishing and aquaculture operations. This means we get to share and enjoy shells that would otherwise be waste.
I source my shells from a company that are mindful of their overseas harvesters and use fair trade practices. They have voluntarily committed to an industry Stewardship Action Plan to adapt responsibly to working in a marine environment and also contribute to scientific research projects and participate in government initiatives. In November 2008, the fishery was presented internationally as an example of the world’s best practice in ecologically sustainable fisheries management.
