Abalone shells are very high vibrational and identify with the element of water. They carry energies of protection and emotional balance and bring with them a natural shielding that blesses the person holding it with tranquility.
Abalone shells are beautiful to use for holding your white sage or cleansing tools. It is said that if you think of the Abalone representing water, it will tame the flames of one's emotional strife.
Simply place your cleansing stick over the shell while you walk around cleansing, and use the shell to extinguish the flames or embers.
Please note your shell may differ slightly to the one shown as every shell is unique in size, shape and colour.
