Authentic Handmade Natural Hawaiian Puka Shell Necklace 18.5 Inches - Gorgeous

18.5 inch

Puka Shells collected from Kapua Bay, Big Island Hawaii.

Puka shells are naturally occurring bead-like shell fragments which can be found on some beaches in Hawaii. Each one is a beach-worn apex of a cone snail shell, a kind of seashell from a sea snail. Puka is the Hawaiian word for "hole" and refers to the naturally occurring hole in the middle of these rounded and worn shell fragments. These natural beads were made into necklaces and other forms of Hawaiian Jewelry. Puka shell jewelry first became a popular item in Hawaii during the 1960s, as an attractive and inexpensive lei which could be made and sold on the beach where it was made. In the 1970s, this type of shell jewelry became highly sought after, and prices skyrocketed.
Cone snails, cone shells, or cones are common names for a large group of small to large-sized extremely venomous predatory sea snails.
All cone snails are venomous and capable of "stinging" humans, live ones should never be handled, as their venomous sting will occur without warning and can be fatal. The species most dangerous to humans are the larger cones, which prey on small bottom-dwelling fish. Cone snails use a hypodermic needle–like modified radula tooth and a venom gland to attack and paralyze their prey before engulfing it. The tooth, which is sometimes likened to a dart or a harpoon, is barbed and can be extended some distance out from the head of the snail, at the end of the proboscis.
