correct, abalone is not a stone. my poor grammar...
"abalone, as well as semi-precious and precioius stones"
Beej, I am still in Mexico, and the markets are loaded with abalone, jade, pyrite, onyx, y mas.
That was basically why I started this thread; I've found so many materials for so cheap and I wanted to ask opinions about whether or not I could use them as inlay before going ahead and just doing it.
But yes, mostly I'm thinking in blackish abalone. very sexy
