Marsden Flower Greenstone Traditional Matau Fish Hook

(KTG15)


Marsden Flower Greenstone Traditional Matau Fish Hook

A traditional Maori pendant which is known to the Maori of New Zealand as the Matau or Fish Hook. The Matau is said to represent the search for knowledge/matauranga and have a contemporary connection to good health and safe travel over water and has a connection to Maui who with the sacred knowledge of his ancestor left Hawaiki and discovered Aotearoa, New Zealand.

This pendant is carved from a beautiful pale Marsden Flower Jade, the piece of Marsden greenstone has fantastic colours and gradients from yellow to dark green. It has a matte satin finish. Greenstone is regarded as the stone of the gods by the Maori of New Zealand. It is referred to as a Taonga, treasured thing, and it should be worn with respect and pride, it should be given with love.

This is a one off piece and will not be available again

New Zealand greenstone
When the first white settlers arrived on the West Coast of the South Islands of New Zealand they found that the maoris were using tough, hard and very beautiful green stone to make war weapons, cutting and carving tools and articles for personal adornment.

The Maori called the stone Pounamu, which liberally translated means Green Stone, The settlers ignorant of the fact that the stone was in fact nephrite Jade, put the two words together and gave it the distinctive name - Greenstone and it is still known in New Zealand by this name.
