(KTG80)  - - - NEW PRODUCT - - -


Kahurangi Pounamu Greenstone Hei Matau Fish Hook Pendant

A wonderful fish hook pendant fashioned from Kahurangi Greenstone greenstone from the Greymouth area of the south island of New Zealand.

This pendant is a Hei Matau or Fish Hook. The Fish Hook refers to the fabulous fishhook of the demigod Maui with which he fished up the North Island of New Zealand. The Hei matau is a symbol of strength, determination, peace, prosperity and good health. It is also said that the hei matau protects the wearer when travelling especially over water.

This pendant is carved from Kahurangi greenstone / Pounamu, A highly translucent, lightish green shade, free from dark spots and other flaws. One of the rarest varieties, held in high esteem by the Maori. Endless combinations of Pounamu types occur, and no two pieces are the same guaranteeing that your Pounamu is unique.

Measures 52mm (2.05 inches) Long, 40mm (1.6 inches) wide.

This piece is a one off unique piece and has it's ownindividual code to trace it's authenticity and will not be available again.

Every piece of pounamu has a story. With these pieces you can find out yours. Te Wahi Pounamu have developed a system for verifying the authenticity of every Pounamu item they carve.

Along with this pendant you will be given a unique code which you can enter on a special site online and find out about this pendant's source, stone and region, it's whakapapa (history & genealogy)

By buying this authentic Te Wahi Pounamu piece, you can be sure that you are buying genuine New Zealand jade (rather than imported or black market Jade). It also guarantees that the Pounamu has been extracted by legitimate means, and treated using appropriate cultural values.

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.
