Abalam, donkey shell, .040"
"Abalam" is a stunning inlay material, made by laminating extremely thin sections of shell in such a way as to render the entire surface of the sheet with beautiful, figured shell patterns — unlike natural shell slab pieces which vary over the surface area and depth of the piece. It is perfectly flat and is actually easier to saw into delicate patterns because of the homogeneous nature of the laminations. This is the ideal material when you need unusually large pieces or for projects where extreme figure is a must.
