Abalone is also known as Paua shell and is the gem of New Zealand. This natural organic gem has been used by many cultures through the ages. It has been used as masks, jewellery and decorative bowls. In Native American cultures, abalone shell is used as a smudge bowl to burn sage as it is believed that together will carry their messages up to heaven.
In crystal healing, Abalone is said to have a calming effect. It is said to relieve anxiety and stress. It is said to help with arthritis, joint disorders and muscular problems.
