Caption: Abalone shell. Underside of the shell of an abalone (Haliotis sp.) sea-snail, showing the mother-of-pearl lining. Abalone are large edible marine molluscs. Mother-of-pearl (nacre) is an iridescent shell lining produced by some mollusks. It is composed of the same material that makes up pearls and is commonly used in the jewellery industry. Photographed in Brittany, France.
