The fantastic shells are not a side-product anymore but more and more a main product because they are very popular. Mother of Pearl has been for centuries considered as something that is very purifying and works positively. Thus the strength of the Abalone shell is in the Mother of Pearl and it's working is like a gem: gems give energy and have a noble force and the same is the case with Abalone.
