Pawa shell found on the beach in the Catlins. New Zealand’s Abalone pearls are natural pearls from the Abalone Haliotis Iris (Maori name Paua), which is the Black Foot Abalone. The ear-shaped Abalone sea creature produces a highly iridescent baroque pearl, together with flat, spherical and wing-shaped pearls that are prized by collectors for their colour and rarity. The iridescent nacre of the Abalone pearls show an extraordinary range of colours from deep azure to peacock green, red-orange, cream and magenta.Abalone Pearls are different to what you might find produced in an Abalone pearl “Farm”, these formations are 100% natural with no human interaction or manipulation. Because of this they are also not produced on demand, nor are any two the same. They are truly a unique and natural product of their environment.
