The Abalone Mexican Polished shell bears a beautiful open spiral structure. The thick inner layer of the shell is composed of mother of pearl, giving rise to stunning iridescent colours. The shell is particularly attractive as a decorative object due to these changeable colours which catch the light, creating a rainbow of pearly blues, greens and soft lilac shades. This variety of Abalone shell can be used for many craft projects in and around the home, not to mention its use outside. Attach Abalone Mexican shell to plant pots by creating a border at the top of the container and the base, or glue in a decorate pattern to create a focal feature for bland decking or patio areas. Inside the home, the Mexican Abalone shell can be arranged stylishly in bathrooms to create a nautical-inspired theme for those relaxing bubble soaks. The shell can also be used as a stand-alone element to plant near your soap dish or toothbrush holder - its gorgeous multi-coloured pearly tones complimenting any colour choice, including minimalistic bathrooms.
