Abalone are shellfish of the univalve family, meaning they only have one shell, unlike bivalves such as clams that consist of two shells. Wild abalone appear in many different varieties. Most abalone live in shallow waters and grow slowly. The most common species is the red abalone (H. rufescens). Red abalone are also the largest and can grow to 30 cm (12 in.)and weigh 3.6 kg (8 lbs). The inner shell of abalone, which has an iridescent green, blue, or pink sheen, is a source of mother-of-pearl.

Beautiful colors. 12 inches is pretty large and probably a hefty price to go with it. Its shell makes a beautiful decoration. Excellent Job. Aloha

Very nice showing Akemi....Your Abalone is My Paua, which is in danger of being Poached to extinction ...and ending up in Gourmet Restaurants of another Continent. Save the Abalone/Paua! "We shall not be Moved!"
