The highly iridescent inner nacre layer of the shell of abalone has traditionally been used as a decorative item, in jewelry, buttons and as inlay in furniture and in musical instruments such as guitars.  In New Zealand, the shell is called paua in the Maori language.  The flesh of the abalone is considered a delicious delicacy.
