This is the newest version of my classic Naja Choker Necklace design, featuring an abalone shell Naja. Abalone is so beautiful, each piece is completely unique and hand shaped. The colors are a mix of blue, green, yellow, purple and pink. Each side of the necklace has different shaped and patterns, so you an wear it both ways.

This is the perfect necklace to wear to be aligned with the ocean and its healing vibrations.

Abalone jewelry, masks and decorative bowls have been used by many ancient cultures due to abalone meaning and properties. In Native American cultures, the abalone shell is used as a smudge bowl to burn sage in. They believed that the abalone and sage together will carry their messages up to heaven. In the Apache culture, abalone is used in The Sunrise Ceremony, a ritual that marks a girl’s passage into womanhood. 

Because of their hard, ultra protective exoskeletons created from soft body invertebrates, the Abalone shell symbolizes independence, solitude, and self-reliance. Abalone also contains minerals accumulated over the millennia from their body and the sea: It exhibits an exquisite natural design that is cherished for its beauty, strength and symmetrical precision. These colors aren’t random but have evolved over the millennia, giving it an ancestral wisdom that associates it with divine knowledge and the infinite possibilities of the universe. This is why Native Americans considered Abalone a strong stone of the spirit.

Evolving in the ocean, abalone’s ultra-tough exterior is what makes it known for nurturing protection. When you wear Abalone jewelry, it helps connect you with the healing power of the water element—a subtle, yet powerful energy. This energy guards you from negative vibes, whether they stem from your own inner critic or other kinds of darkness that may enter your personal space.  

When you wear Abalone jewelry, you have a constant flow of its protective healing properties. Its radiant beauty reflects the magic of the spirit world with its mother of pearl luminescence, which casts a lovely glow when combined with other gemstones. If you’re craving the regenerative healing of the great oceans of the planet, try wearing Abalone shell. These soothing and calming crystals create a synergy of energy that makes an excellent antidote for daily stress. As soon as these healing minerals come into contact with your skin, it keeps your spirit in harmony with the ocean.

The believed abalone healing properties of today are very similar to ancient beliefs of the shell. Abalone healing carries energies of protection and emotional balance. It brings with it a natural shielding that blesses the person holding it with tranquility. Abalone healing is especially helpful for those going through emotional turmoil or those having a hard time dealing with a situation in a relationship. Through it’s soothing energy, it provides a layer of protection that perches the spirit up with the confidence necessary to view situations from a new, more understanding perspective. If you think of abalone as representative of water, like many cultures do, it is the water that will tame the flames of one’s emotional strife.
