HISTORY & FACTS: Red Abalone has been used since prehistoric times—Red Abalone shells have been found in archaeological sites dated to nearly 12,000 years old. Red Abalone middens— deposits where red abalone shells are a major constituent—are abundant in archaeological sites of the Northern Channel Islands dated between about 7500 and 3500 years ago. The Native American Chumash peoples also harvested this species along the Central California coast in the pre-contact era. The Chumash and other California Indians also used Red Abalone shells to make a variety of fishhooks, beads, ornaments, and other artifacts. Abalone shells are still used today in jewelry as well as other accessories like furniture, buttons, and musical instruments.
