Pāua Shell

Pāua is the Māori name given to three New Zealand species of large edible sea snails, known in the United States and Australia as abalone, and in the United Kingdom as ormer shells [source: Wikipedia]

And people regularly eat them, commonly as fritters, despite knowing this!

Along many rocky shorelines you will find pāua shells and it doesn't take long to shift through the broken ones to find something as glorious as this.

Tourists buy loads of things with pāua shell in, on, of them but really, just walk to the rocky beach and find your own.
