Abalone and Pearls

Endlessly captivating the ever changing colors and patterns of an abalone shell are truly one of nature’s miracles. This particular shell is a white abalone, the rarest of the 6 species of abalone. Most commonly found between California and Mexico, this specimen was given to me by a Mestizo fishermen on the southern tip of the Nicoya peninsula on Costa Rica's Pacific coast. Enjoy!
