Description

Paua is the Māori name given to New Zealand  molluscs. In the United States and Australia as abalone, and in the United Kingdom as ormer shells.Paua shells are a thick seashell which shimmers with the gorgeous iridescent colours of mother-of-pearl.

Paua  are often used in smudging rituals  because the shell can catch the hot cinders that fall away from the smudging stick during burning and they symbolise a beautiful gift from the ocean.  They hold the energy of the ocean and bring a strong calming and healing energy, allowing you to remain connected to the sea – even when you are landlocked. Thought to bring connectivity and harmony to relationships, and are also a symbol for change and transition, based on the way the shell reflects light.

Our Paua shells are of the best quality and size (around 12 cm or 5 inches) and come with a clever folding stand from 1 piece of wood.
