17 in stock



  • One Large Abalone Shell 6-7″ with slight imperfections
  • May have: Hairline cracks, chips along the edge, small holes, or markings inside

So why do we call them “ugly ducklings”?

Due to the processing of abalone shells, sometimes it can be left with black markings on the inside due to the sunlight during the cleaning phase. This can be mistaken for a used shell (which it is not). Sometimes, they may even have a hairline crack or chips along the edge. It does not keep the shell from being usable, however. We have a high standard of quality but sometimes the batch of shells has an ugly duckling or two in the bunch.

Instead of sending these out with our kits, we are listing them as a separate item.

They are fully functioning and other wise in good condition so if you do not mind a few black markings or hairline cracks on the inside, then this is the shell for you!

What can I use these shells for?

Used for holding sage, Palo Santo sticks, candles, or incense. You can also use them to display your favorite crystals or jewelry.

They help protect your furniture from burn marks as well as keeps ash from falling to the floor while smudging.

If you are interested, we also carry an EXTRA large shell that is 7-8 inches or a large 6-6 1/2″ shell. See shop for ads.
