Inanga Greenstone Traditional Manaia Pendant by Moreton Jewellery

Inanga Greenstone Traditional Manaia Pendant by Moreton Jewellery

This beautiful pendant is in the style of a traditional Manaia. The Manaia is a protection symbol representing the combination of man, fish and bird. The manaia is said to protect the wearer from negative energies. The pendant comes with an adjustable black cord in a presentation kete.

This piece is crafted from Inanga greenstone or Pounamu, which is a type of greenstone which features a grey-green colour. It is either very translucent or quite opaque. Highly prized by the Maori and desired material for making mere and patu. Greenstone is regarded as the stone of the gods by the Maori of New Zealand. It is refered to as a Taonga, treasured thing, and it should be worn with respect and pride, it should be given with love.

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

New Zealand greenstone
When the first white settlers arrived on the West Coast of the South Island 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.
