They have a low open spiral structure, and are characterised by several open respiratory pores in a row near the shell's outer edge. The exterior of the shell is striated and dull. The thick inner layer of the shell is composed of nacre (mother of pearl), which in many species is highly iridescent, giving rise to a range of strong changeable colours, which make the shells very attractive. The colour of the shell is very variable from iridescent nacre silvery white, to pink, red and green-red. Shells of abalone are worldwide used as decorative items and as a source of mother of pearl for jewellery, buttons, buckles, and inlay since immemorial times (eg: 75,000 year old deposits at Blombos Cave in South Africa).Many people throughout history have found (and still find) the very rounded, shiny, porcelain-like shells of cowries pleasing to look at and to handle. Indeed the term "porcelain" derives from the old Italian term for the cowrie shell (porcellana) due to their similar translucent appearance.Black Foot Paua is the largest Abalone species found in New Zealand and is most commonly found in shallow cool waters at depths less than 6 m. Black Foot Paua grows to about 180 mm in shell length.
