Sunrise shells are an extremely rare and sacred shell, containing every color of the spectrum, but usually occur in yellow, orange, and red. They are one of the most treasured and colorful shell found on the beaches of Hawaii. These shells were once the exclusive property of the Hawaiian royalty, truly a wondrous jewel of the sea.
They get their name Sunrise shells because of their beautiful color, echoing the sky in a magnificent Hawaii sunrise. They are often found at first light on the beach, when they glow under the luminescent clouds. They range in size from a dime to a silver dollar. Sunrises are a rare delight and offer their wearers protection and power that goes back thousands of years in Hawaii's rich history.
