Sunrise Shells are rare, brilliant marvels found on Kaua'i. Known formally as Langford‘s Pectens, the Shells received their popular name of Sunrise because their colorations - and their forms when held upright - remind us of the sun rising in all its brilliance. Anyone lucky enough to be wearing a Sunrise can take advantage of the ancient history of these Shells as bringers of fortune and happy circumstances.
