Polished Black Abalone Shell
This Black Abalone Shell is absolutely stunning. Finished with a high-gloss polish, it features luminous mother of pearl, peeking out to glimmer and shine from underneath the black outer shell. Beneath this elegant shell, you will find the full array of rainbow colours that mother of pearl is so well known for.
Approximately 10.5cm - 12cm in length these are a wonderful addition to any shell collection or superb as a stand-alone specimen.
This would make an amazing start to a black and white sea shell collection or a great duo teamed up with our leopard print pica shell.
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.
