Paua Abalone (11×14)
The iridescent greens, blues, pinks and purples of the paua abalone make it one of the world’s most beautiful shells, but are also indicative of its structure and strength.
Abalone shells can absorb the impact of a blow without breaking because they are made up of microscopic stacked tiles that slide when hit. The structure of these tiles interacting with light gives the shells their glistening colors and sheen.
