Paua is unique to New Zealand and lives on the rocky shoreline all around the coast. It is the most-colorful of the Abalone species and is regarded by New Zealanders as a treasure, a special gift from the God of the Sea.

This is a gorgeously vibrant and iridescent piece of paua underneath resin and off-set in a base-metal brooch. Excellent vintage condition. Measures 50mm long x 22mm wide and approximately 3mm wide.

30 years as a vintage collector and hours of additional research help me to do my best to accurately describe and identify items before listing. Please feel free to share additional information if you have knowledge about a particular item - I love to learn. And if you're not happy with an item you can always contact me to work out a solution.

I love sending my items as gifts - let me know if you'd like wrapping or a personal gift card. Thanks for looking! xo
