Our Paua (abalone) Shell veneers are made from the finest grade (A) abalone and oyster shells.

Paua is one of the world's most beautiful shells because of its incredible and intense variation of color.

Paua shells remind us of a kaleidoscope or hologram, with the colors dancing and sparkling as the iridescent patterns of the nacre catch the glints of light when viewed from different angles.

Shell veneer is used in the fishing lure, drums, guitars, knives, cars, boats, crafts, fine marquetry trades and most any hard surface needing decor.
Raw - Natural, no coatings
ThinLam - Clear top coating, clear/colored back coating
Sheet Size: 24cm x 14cm
                   (approx. 9 1/4" x 5 1/2")

Approximate Thickness:
Raw = .012mm
ThinLam = .15mm

Can be cut with simple hobbyist tools, paper cutter, or scissors

Scratch Resistant, Flexible

The paua fishery is managed with a quota system in order to ensure the sustainability of this natural resource. Paua fishers free-dive to pry the mollusk from the rocks. The paua meat is considered a delicacy and the shells are a by-product of catching paua for their meat so all parts of the product are utilized.

ThinLamTM Laminates - Coated on Both Sides

The veneer panels are revolutionary because, using only one thin piece of Paua, we've developed a coating process to give the same effect as a much thicker piece of shell. The possible applications for these veneer panels is only limited by the creativity of the user, and because of their ease of use compared to traditional Paua shell inlay they have almost zero wastage. Please note: No returns on Thinlam Coated/Colored veneer.
