Natural Abalone (Paua) Shell
Rainbow abalone, or haliotis iris, has beautiful colours, predominantly blue and green and this variant of mother of pearl is called paua by the Maori, the original population of New Zealand. New Zealand paua have the most beautiful colours in the world, and are used for burning loose white sage and smudges. The natural holes in the shell provide air supply. These are a natural product and so size, shape and colours will vary. There may be rough edges too. A natural, sustainable product from New Zealand.
