Abalones belong to the family Haliotidae.  The highly iridescent inner layer of the shell of abalone has traditionally been used as a decorative item in jewelry, buttons, and as inlay in furniture and in musical instruments such as guitars, etc. The shell is also polished and sold for seashell decorating and used in shell crafts and making inlaid knife handles, tables and jewelry. Abalone is a marine snail commonly called ear shell, sea ear, and ormer. Abalones live in warm areas of the Pacific Ocean, in the Indian Ocean, and on Europe's coasts. The shell is ear-shaped and has a row of three to nine small holes near one edge. It grows to a length of more than 12 inches . The shell is lined with an iridescent, pearl-like layer and is used to make mother-of-pearl buttons The abalone has a broad foot with which it attaches itself to submerged rocks. It feeds on algae and seaweed. They are found along the coast of California and Oregon. The abalone is harvested for its shell and edible foot from the ocean and from commercial farms that specialize in growing abalones.
