The neck of a PRS Dragon guitar is seen on display as part of a new exhibition from the National Guitar Museum "Guitar: The Instrument That Rocked The World" at the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, New Jersey, October 3, 2014. The PRS Dragon neck is inlaid with 238 pieces of gold, red and green Abalone, mother of pearl and the ivory of a wooly mammoth. The exhibition, which runs from October 4 through January 4, 2015, explores facets of the world's most popular instrument from its history as an instrument of popular culture over the past 400 years to the science of creating sound with wood, steel and other materials.

A conservation official holds a bag of abalone confiscated from suspected poachers in Cape Town March 13, 2014. Destined for trendy restaurants in Hong Kong and China, abalone - dubbed "white gold" after its pearly flesh - can fetch up to 4,500 rand ($420) a kg on the South African black market, and nearly three times that in Asia, experts say. Also found in abundance in cold waters off New Zealand, Australia, Japan and the west coast of the United States, abalone from South Africa is considered to be among the best. The hunt is driving the species to the edge of extinction, but fears of being caught - either by coastguards or great white sharks - are relegated to the back of poachers' minds by the glittering prizes on offer.

People have dinner at a fine restaurant in Beijing
People have dinner at a fine restaurant in Beijing February 21, 2013. The price of dish of abalone and shark's fin in the restaurant is 488 RMB (about $80) and 368 RMB (about $60). China has pledged to double household incomes over the coming decade in a bid to close a wealth gap so wide it threatens social stability. Although the proportion of extreme poverty has fallen over recent decades, about 12 percent of the country's 1.3 billion people still live on less than $1.25 per day, according to a 2013 United Nations report.

The multi million-dollar trade in the small shellfish, prized by Chinese communities as a New Year dinner, sees a seasonal windfall both for the abalone industry and the criminal gangs who run poaching operations in Australia and New Zealand. With domestic sales insignificant, abalone fishermen in Australia and neighbouring New Zealand match their catch to meet Lunar New Year demand in restaurants in Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China and Japan.
