Paua Abalone Sun Burst Necklace


    Paua Abalone Shell Necklace . This is Abalone shell comes from New Zealand and Paua is actually of Māori who originated with settlers from East Polynesia, who arrived in New Zealand in several waves of waka (canoe) voyages between roughly 1320 and 1350.

    Because these shells are only found in this one area of the world, Pāua are both rare and much sought after. There are stringent controls in place to limit the collection and ensure sustainability, indeed they have to be harvested by using only traditional “free diving” methods and the use of scuba equipment or modern machinery to farm them is strictly forbidden. This all makes the stone one of the rarest as its not east to just get.
