Abalone Shell


Abalone is used in traditional smudging ceremonies. These natural shells are the perfect size and shape for holding a sage wand as it burns. They keep the wand from dropping burning cinders and are shallow enough that they don't put it out. The element of water displayed by the abalone is a perfect compliment to the fire of the smudge bundle. As you carry the shell, you can waft the smoke using a feather or your hand. 

Native American tribes in California have used abalone shells for a variety of purposes, including as decorative objects, as a source of food, and in traditional ceremonies and rituals.

Known to represent water in many cultures, abalone was revered for thousands of years and believed to encourage psychic and intuitive abilities as well as dream work and astral travel. 

Standard benefits:
- Keeps sage bundle from burning out.
- Provides a safe place for the wand to rest when not in use.
