A genus of shellfish from the haliotidae family of edible rock-clinging gastropod mollusks that have a flattened shell slightly spiral in form, lined with mother-of-pearl, and with a row of apertures along its outer edge. The abalone shell is a richly colored sea shell that when polished makes a beautiful ornament. It is used as a popular inlay material in musical instruments such as guitar and bass.
