The mollusc which produces the shell is mainly sought after for its meat , the shell being a bi-product. The New Zealand government manages the resource by allowing the harvest of a certain number per day and these must be above a specified size. The shells may be blue ,deep or pale pink in colour and exhibit wonderful swirling designs. They are made from many layers of nacre , created by the organism.

Paua Shell is a birthstone for the water signs of Pisces , Aquarius , Cancer and Scorpio.
