Mother-of-pearl or abalone and other shells are also found, and, with sponges, are exported.
I'll have the abalone slices with the oyster sauce, please.
The abalone shell is found especially at Santa Barbara and other places on the southern Californian coast, and when polished makes a beautiful ornament.
Our special today is roasted abalone, a seafood delicacy.
Opal, mother of pearl, and abalone accents are also popular.
