The story Matasha's Shell is about a mermaid named Matasha, who is born at the Great Barrier Reef. This is in the northeast of Queensland in the Coral Sea in the country of Australia. She emerges after ten long years from the pearl inside the beautiful mother of pearl shell. The shell radiates a very special energy and magical light, and after Matasha's many adventures, she returns home to her birth place.
The shell's luminous light radiates for miles from the ocean depths to the mountain tops and the vast bush land. All the creatures, large and small, are captivated by it; and some travel for miles, staying as long as they want, to renew their energies.
