Paua shell is the most colourful variety of abalone shell, found only in New Zealand. The blue, green, gold & pink are all natural; no dye has been used, & the colours change as the shell moves - please look at all of the photos to appreciate this effect. At some angles, the gold & pink almost disappear, while at other angles there is less blue visible. This shell is almost 1 1/4 inches (3.2 cm) long.

I have wrapped this paua pendant & all pieces with sterling silver; the starfish charm is also sterling silver. The pendant comes on a 45 cm (18 inch) silver-plated chain with a self-closing clasp, perfect for people with dexterity or mobility issues - much easier than the usual lobster clasps.
