16 x 20 Champagne Abalone Study

$400

The iridescence of the champagne abalone makes it one of the world’s most beautiful shells, but it is also indicative of its structure and strength. Abalone shells can absorb the impact of a blow without breaking because they are made up of microscopic stacked tiles that slide when hit. The structure of these tiles interacting with light gives the shells their glistening colors and sheen.
