Abalone are sea snails--a marine gastropod mollusk. The inner shell of an abalone is made up of nacre or mother-of-pearl. This nacre comes in a variety of colors, including white/silver, pink, red, green, blue and purple. This variety, and the variations found in each abalone shell, are what make this shell, no matter what it's called, wonderful to use in jewelry designs.
