||The most colorful of all pearl producing mollusks, Abalone are found in rocky coastal waters around the world. Though fairly plentiful, these rock-hugging snails rarely produce pearls. When they do, the result can be incredibly beautiful. The colors range from vibrant greens, blues and pinks to silver and on some occasion white.
Though occasionally symmetrical, most abalone pearls are baroque, the most common shape resembling a horn or sharks tooth. Pearls of this nature have been known to reach great size with some specimens measuring over five inches in length.
