paua shell

Paua shells are very colorful and are mainly found in New Zealand. The colors in them are sea blue, sage green, pale orange, light pink and purple. In the sunlight, the colors shimmer vividly. Wild paua shells are rough as a cracked boulder but after they are polished they are as smooth as glass. They are used for decoration and to make jewelry. Paua shells are probably the most colorful shells in the world, that’s why some people like them.
