Abalone or Paua Shell - Stone of the week



Abalone or Paua Shell is the shell of a marine snail. It is the highly iridescent inside of the shell which is used in jewellery and other ornamental pieces. I have seen it in guitars, furniture and other household items such as decorative boxes. There are various colours of shell depending on where in the world they are caught. If any of you have ever watched Xena: warrior princess, then one of her disc weapons, Chakram, was decorated with Abalone.

Abalone attributes:

· Enhances feelings of beauty, love, peace and compassion

· Useful when requiring guidance in relationships

· Helps strengthen the immune system

· Energises the body

· Increases strength and stamina, particularly in athletes


This jewellery is very popular in New Zealand and Australia where it is known as Pāua. Due to its popularity all over the world, the snail is farmed these days but, where it is caught in the wild, it is restricted. Sadly, the reason for this is that it is predicted that abalones will become extinct in the wild within 200 years due to the amount of carbon dioxide production - this reduces the pH level of the water and erodes their shells. So, in this case it is pollution as well as over-fishing which is causing the problem. It is sad that these beautiful shells could be lost forever if we are not able to resolve the problem…
