Rock Legend: Especially prized by prehistoric jewelry makers, nowhere was Abalone more esteemed than among the Navajo. Echoing a distant past, Abalone, as one of the Navajo's four sacred stones, plays a significant role in many of their myths. As one of the four sacred stones, Abalone is associated with the creation of the sacred mountains that mark the boundaries of the Navajo homeland. A building material of the first Navajo Hogan, Abalone was also a part of the first loom, a vital part of the Navajo culture.
