Abalone Shell meaning-

"Shells are made up of calcium carbonate and grow in the ocean, forming part of a living ecosystem. Various types of shell have been used as gems for centuries. One of these types include those made up of pearly layers: mother of pearl, abalone and New Zealand paua.

Abalone shell has been used in many cultures as a decorative jewelry and for carvings. A disc of abalone shell is worn on the forehead of Apache girls as they greet the sun in the morning of their initiation into womanhood.
Abalone strengthens the structure of the body and the functions of the heart chakra. Both pearl and abalone shell hold the same divinatory meaning:

Intimately connected to the sea - represents the tides of emotion
An easy flow of feelings and sensitivities to others
Connected to family and particularly motherhood
Harmony in relationships
The play and variety of colors represent change as the beauty of existence."
