There are about one hundred species of abalone worldwide, some of which are used medicinally. Abalones belong to the Haliotidae family, and their iridescent mother-of-pearl interiors glow like shimmering waves making them a popular resource for jewelry. The interior of the paua abalone (Haliotis iris) is called “sea opal”. Some are commonly used for food. The donkey’s ear (H. asinina) species has a more oblong shape resembling the ear of a donkey. Abalones in general are nicknamed ear shells and sea ears.
Appearance: Abalones are thick and oval or elliptically shaped with a whorl ridge that is studded with typically four to ten holes for respiration. In some species the whorls are more like folds. Colors include brown, green-brown, dark green, red-brown, brick red, orange-red; some with creamy streaks. The inside of the shell is cover with iridescent silver, blue and green nacre. Some abalones have a mottled appearance.
Magical Associations: abundance, determination, emotions (heal), generosity, healing, imagination, insight, introspection, intuition, life (paua), the mind, problems (avoid)
Directions: Northeast, Southwest, West
Uses: These shells are frequently used as smudge bowls for cleansing the energy of an area. Abalone’s beautiful interior energetically attracts abundance.
These shells belong to the Pholadidae family. If you find both halves of an angel wing (Cyrtopleura costata) shell, you will see how they got their name: when opened flat they resemble a pair of angel’s wings. The false angel wing (Petricola pholadiformis) resembles the angel wing, but is smaller and more refined. Despite their delicate appearance they can bore into clay, wood and some types of rock.
Other members of this family include the piddocks, which have wing-like shape such as the campeche angel (Pholas campechiensis), European piddock (Pholas dactylus), and the fallen angel wing (Barrea truncate) which is also known as the Atlantic mud piddock.
Appearance: Angel wings are whitish elongated and delicate with ribs that run from the hinge joint to the outer edges, giving them a feathered appearance.
Magical Associations: balance, determination, energy (angelic), freedom, grace, hope, magic (angelic), support
Uses: This shell helps raise our spirits and lets our intentions soar. They can also aid in contact with angelic energy.
Clams encompass a wide range of species from several families all of which are known as clams: the Hard-Shelled Clam, think clam chowder (Mercenaria mercenaria), the Soft-Shelled Clam also known as steamers (Mya arenaria) and Surf Clams (Spisula solidissima) to name a few. Some clams are very colorful and some almost wing-shaped earning them the nick-name Butterfly Shells (from the Tellinidae family). Others twist around on themselves giving the shell a ram’s horn appearance (family Glossidae). The Chocolate-Flamed Venus Clam (Lioconcha castrensis) has dark brown zigzag lines that on some shells resemble ancient writing.
Appearance: Clams can be circular, oblong, oval or triangular. Colors range from white to dark brown and include most shades of the rainbow in solid colors or patterns. Some have a papery coating over the exterior of their shells.
Magical Associations: abundance, communication, compassion, emotions (protect), healing, life, love, purification, secrets, self-work, sex/uality, stability, sympathy, well-being
Uses: Clams can help us find our place in the world, hold a confidence and protect emotions.
