Abalone are marine snails with shells that have a low, open spiral structure (shaped like an ear). The thick inner layer of the shell is composed of nacre (mother-of-pearl), which in many species is highly iridescent, giving rise to a range of strong, changeable colors which make the shells attractive as decorative objects, jewelry, and as a source of colorful mother-of-pearl.
