Paua Shell (Abalone)

Naturally iridescent with a multitude of radiant hues, the New Zealand Paua Shell is highly attractive & unique. Paua is the Maori word for abalone and is pronounced “pah-wah”. We use Paua Shell because it is the brightest of all abalone shells. The colours of each shell change when viewed from different angles & the patterns are also unique to each shell.
