Perola Shell Factory is a bulk commercial shell dealer and has been dealing in South African abalone shells (Haliotus midae) and mother of pearl products for more than 25 years. We offer the largest quantities of top quality abalone product at the best prices on African soil. Contact us for a quote. Please mention the size of the order you intend placing, since this affects the pricing.
The South African abalone, Haliotus midae, has been deregistered from CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species). In other words, a CITES certificate is no longer required to ship the product internationally. As a result, exporting mother of pearl from South Africa has become a lot easier.
A 20 foot container holds approximately 10 tons of abalone shell, whereas a 40 foot container holds approximately 19 tons of abalone shell.
We also supply a large variety of other shell types in bulk. Feel free to enquire if you are looking for a particular shell type.
