The pink resin forms a slight dome shape typical of cabochons and heightens the natural patterns of the shell. Try gluing this cabochon to fashion accessories or adding it to handmade pendants. Paua shell comes from New Zealand, where it's beautiful coloring and iridescent properties have made it popular with tourists.
