This lovely leaf shaped pendant has been made with several types of shell, with many opalescent shades, and lots of shimmer. The natural swirls of the shell, especially the Paua, also known as Abalone, creates individual patterns, making each piece of jewellery unique. The colour in the Paua shell changes when viewed at different angles. This iridescence, similar to that in Mother of Pearl shell, but far more brilliant, is what makes Paua shell so amazing as a gem material for use in jewellery. It is truly one of nature’s marvels. Paua Shell is good for power, femininity and seeing beauty. It is good for the eyes and reduces physical tension and builds physical strength. It is good for love, relaxation and letting go of emotions.
