Abalone shells are often used for smudging ceremonies by the Native Americans in Canada and the United States. 

These abalone shells have been cleaned, bleached, and treated in muriatic acid and/or dipped in a light coating of resin. The outside of the shell is clean, but still rough. They are not recommended for use in food consumption. 

The sizes have been obtained by measuring the longest side of the shell.
