Abalone in Depth by me:)
Wednesday, June 29, 2022
Good morning everyone, this is an older draft that I have had saved for a bit. I wanted to go ahead and post it.
Hello everyone, I posted about Abalone with a quick screenshot of my quicknotes I took on the subject for my crystal index but I wanted to go a little more in depth to it!

My Background with Abalone
I haven’t had much personal experience with Abalone, so it doesn’t ring close to my heart. But I’ve had brief encounters with it from time to time.
Sad Core Memory
I remember one time my mom came home, I was about seven or eight, and she said, “look Ashlynn this comes from the ocean, I’m sorry I’ve never been able to take you there,” she had so much disappointment in her eyes. With all this current talk of Core Memory Building on TikTok, I have to admit; that has to be one of my sad, little, blue lady’s glowing orb.
Friendship Island Core Bubble
Here’s a happier memory, probably another core bubble, I was in 4th grade [nine years old?] and because my family was disabled, low-income, and struggling day to day, we moved around a lot; basically a new apartment once a year. It was all in the same generally area, but different school regions. So therefore I didn’t make a lot of friends transferring schools all the time. However, in this grade I met a lifelong best friend, a twin flame if you will. We don’t talk much anymore but if she ever called me needing anything, I would be there in a heartbeat and I know she would do the same for me. I am not going to name her as I haven’t cleared this with her. But if you are reading this, hi:) Anywho she went on vacation for a week or so and when she came back she was all smiley and ran up to me, she always wore Sketchers Shoes, and she said, “I got something for you.” Then she pulled out a necklace. It was an Abalone Shell carved into a flower with a string of random white beads. That was the first time someone who wasn’t family thought of me, and brought me something back from somewhere.
This one time, years after this first core memory, I was taking an online Spanish course in High School. I needed help with a filmed skit written by, directed by, and starring me plus one. So of course, she came to help. I’m not going to go into a lot of detail because it is one of those memories I hold so close, and I don’t want to spill that. But basically it was horrible acting, I used my iPad2 for sound effects, I am terrible at speaking ANY other language, and we were pre-teens who had a few sodas that spiked our blood sugar.
Physical Properties and Knowledge and Whatnot (yanno?)
“Abalone… marine gastropod mollusks in the family Haliotidae.” -Wiki
Okay, mouthful there. First of all, if you don’t know what a mollusk is:
an invertebrate of a large phylum which includes snails, slugs, mussels, and octopuses. They have a soft unsegmented body and live in aquatic or damp habitats, and most kinds have an external calcareous shell. -Google [mollusk]
So basically Abalone is that pretty shell that you sometimes see when you find a clam shell at the beach, or maybe even a sea snail.
Since it is technically a living creature there are scientific classifications for this animal:
Kingdom: Animalia, Phylum: Mollusca (we’ve gone over these two already; distinguished that they’re both alive and in fact Mollusks), Class: Gastropoda, Subclass: Vetigastropoda, Order: Lepetellida, Family: Haliotidae Rafinesque 1815, Genus: Haliotis Linnaeus 1758.
“The shell of the abalone is exceptionally strong and is made of microscopic calcium carbonate tiles stacked like bricks. Between the layers of tiles is a clingy protein substance. When the abalone shell is struck, the tiles slide instead of shattering and the protein stretches to absorb the energy of the blow. Material scientists around the world are studying this tiled structure for insight into stronger ceramic products such as body armor. The dust created by grinding and cutting abalone shell is dangerous; appropriate safeguards must be taken to protect people from inhaling these particles.” -Wiki
By the way its blue and green and kinda iridescent if you didn’t see the picture at the top.
Okay, now to the energy healing portion.
Energy Healing and Cleansing Properties
Obviously as we have been talking I’m sure you’ve realized that the Abalone Shell comes from the ocean. If you think about the ocean, the consistency of the flowing waves, you would think of attributes such as calm and relaxed. That is exactly what this Stone/Shell is meant for. It is also meant for being present in the moment; letting go of past trauma and future anxieties and worries.
A clarifying stone.
Associated Chakras: Solar Plexus, Heart, and Throat.
Use this stone while meditation at the end of the night; it may help ease worries and provide a fulfilling nights’ sleep.
