Abalone or Paua Shell

Cabochons are usually a highly polished, convex shaped, un-faceted gem with a flat back for mounting. On occasion, some cabochons may have flat faces or may have their top surface faceted. Cabochons can be utilized in a number of different ways. You can secure them with a seed bead stitched bezel, wrap them with wire, set them into PMC designs, or glue them onto flat surfaces such as bolo slides. Cabochons can be made from gemstones, glass, or even shell. Please note: Cabochons are not beads, and do not have holes!

Description: Abalone AKA Paua Shell is one of the ocean's most radiant gems. Paua is a particularly stunning species of Abalone (Haliotis iris) found along the coast of New Zealand. Abalone shells are dark and dull on the outer surface, but the inside nacre displays a miraculous play of light and color. The hypnotically undulating colors within the shell exhibit an iridescent shimmer comparable to opal. These Abalone shell glue-on cabochons are dyed and coated in a protective lacquer that also enhances the sheen of the cabochon. The color and pattern of each Abalone is totally unique and will vary between piece to piece.
