The shell of the abalone is exceptionally strong. It is made of microscopic calcium carbonate tiles stacked like bricks. Between the layers of shells is a clingy protein substance. When the abalone shell is struck, the tiles slide instead of shattering and the protein stretches to absorb the energy of the blow. Material scientists around the world are studying the tiled structure for insight into stronger ceramic products such as body armor.
Overall the gem is ok except that there is a small chip near the edge of the garnet if look at it carefully and was not highlighted in the ad.2.52 CTS CERTIFIED SPESSARTITE GARNET-DEEP COLOURS (GNR48)
