History & Origin:

The beautiful Abalone or Paua shell is an organic gemstone, in the same category as amber or pearl. Each shell is fantastically individual - with its own unique array of colours. An Abalone is a type of sea mollusc or sea snail that can be found in oceans all around the world, generally in cold costal waters such as those of New Zealand, South Africa, Australia, North America, and Japan. The Mother of Pearl, or Nacre, is a shining layer that forms inside the shell, creating a rainbow of shimmering colours. This magical shell has held spiritual influence for thousands of years, especially within Native American & Maori cultures.

Metaphysical Properties:

This shell is known for its connection to the ocean & its soothing, peaceful energy. Each shell is unique, serving as a reminder of your individual beauty & distinctive features. It can help you see your shining qualities, as well as bring inspiration, guidance & insight. Like the cleansing waters it came from, this shell can bring spiritual & emotional healing, & also act as a shield against negativity.

How to use:

Use while meditating to feel calm, balanced & connected to the element of water. Carry with you to inspire beauty, imagination & healing. Keep near to bring guidance & spiritual cleansing. Use as a holder for cleansing sticks or incense to inspire purity & remove negative energy. Wear as jewellery or gift to someone special to invite peace & fortune.
