Although not a gemstone, the Paua Shell (related to the abalone) is recognized as sacred to the Maori people of New Zealand from where it is harvested, and is used frequently in their carvings to represent the glittering eyes of the ancestors that gaze down from the dark heavens above. Paua is said to bring the serenity of the sea, bestowing a sense of peace, comfort, beauty, and delight. It is considered to be a very heart-centered substance, aiding artistic expression as well as harmony in relationships, particularly relating to the family.
Crushed Crystal has been carefully mixed with a Phosphorescent Powder, then inlaid into the center of this unique pendant -- causing it to gently "Glow" in the dark, in addition to its vibrant color during the day!
(The Center stone hasn't been altered from its original elegant form, and does not glow)
