Paua (Haliotis Iris) is one of the lasting symbols of life in New Zealand. The brilliant light emanating from the Paua shell, along with incredible patterns in it, came from crystal layers, that are created due to the protein and calcium present in them. It is believed that all abalone varieties strengthen the body as well as the heart. Paua is very useful when it comes to stimulating your psychic development. It will enhance your intuition and other psychic gifts. It will also increase your ability to be more emotionally open and expressive. It will encourage co-operation between yourself and others whether at work or with your personal life. Paua is said to be beneficial in calming you when you start to get high-strung. It is very valuable when you’re working through emotional situations, whether they are emotional situations of the past or the present.
The world over, there are more than hundred varieties of Abalone. However, Paua is the most sought-after amongst these. This is due to the vibrant, catchy, and iridescent colors of its shell; they come in various kinds of hues―right from green and blue, to pink, purple, and golden. Traditionally, these shells were used by Maori to highlight ‘eyes’ in their artwork.
