The mother of pearl spoon is essential to enjoy caviar. Any metal (unless it's gold or platinum) will oxidize the caviar right away and give an unpleasant metal taste. The handle of this variety is made with abalone blue shell.
The Abalone variation: Abalones are marine snails. The thick inner layer of the shell is composed of nacre (mother-of-pearl), which in many species is highly iridescent, giving rise to a range of strong, changeable colors which make the shells attractive to humans as decorative objects, jewelry, and as a source of colorful mother-of-pearl. The iridescent nacre that lines the inside of the shell varies in color from silvery white, to pink, red and green-red to deep blue, green to purple.
