    These tumbled African abalone shell pieces come in 1 kilogram (2.2 pound) bags. The pieces are 12 to 19 millimeters or 0.47 to 0.75 inches.

    There is some minor color variation from bag to bag and piece to piece as these are natural products.

    They are great for use in terrazzo flooring, swimming pool finishes, aquariums, terrariums, gardens, floral decorations, and of course, jewelry.

    If you want to drill the abalone shell pieces, we recommend drilling them in water with a drill press. We do not offer this service.

    Please call for pricing on large orders (1,000 kilos or more) directly from South Africa.

    This particular species of abalone was recently placed under CITES III trade controls by South Africa in May 2007. In June 2010, the South African government removed the CITES status on this shell. No CITES permits are required any longer.

    These shells are a by-product of the food industry.
