Many people are fascinated by pearls. This mysterious nature-bound jewel is a symbol for beauty, purity and love. Genuine natural pearls are very rare and are consequently priceless. This is why mainly cultured pearls are used for jewellery making.
To create a cultured pearl an implant is placed into a shell which then grows into a pearl sac. Therein, in the ocean, the shell produces a mother-of-pearl layer within about two years. However this operation does not always succeed and only about three percent of the cultured pearls are suitable for selling. This also makes them an expensive and exclusive product. One thing is for sure; nature will always leave us with open questions.

Haliotis (paua)
The haliotis the most brightly coloured of all our sea shells. In the water, the outside of its thick oval shell is rough and dull green, and often encrusted with coral-like seaweeds and other animals.
Inside, the shell is a beautiful iridescent blue, green, and mauve. Beneath the shell is a shiny, black, muscular foot which enables the haliotis to glide about quite quickly when foraging for food.
Haliotis moves about and forage at night, and hide, motionless, during the day. If you disturb it, it clings to the rock with its powerful foot.
They live under rocks and ledges, from low tide level down to six metres, but a few go down to twenty metres.
