With this 18mm round paua cabochon, you can add gorgeous iridescent color to a wide variety of projects. The cabochon is made from actual paua shell layered between black resin and clear resin. The clear resin forms a slight dome shape typical of cabochons. Paua shell comes from New Zealand, where its coloring and iridescent properties have made it popular with tourists. Shells with similar properties in the USA are not as vibrant in color and are known as abalone. Because the shell is natural, exact patterns will vary. Feel free to browse for other cabochons.

I ordered 2 of these because with the natural pattern, you can't expect them all to be first choice, but they were.
