Kahurangi Greenstone Roimata Teardrop Earrings by Moreton Jewellery


Kahurangi Greenstone Roimata Teardrop Earrings by Moreton Jewellery

Traditional teardrop Earrings, known to the Maori of New Zealand as the Roimata. The teardrop design is said to represent the flow of positive energy, healing and comfort. Teardrops are generally regarded as touchstones, ideal for meditation. They also represent a connection to the land.

These Earrings are carved from Kahurangi greenstone / Pounamu. Kahurangi Pounamu is a translucent, lightish green pounamu with lighter streaks (which look like clouds) and free from dark spots or any flaws. 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.

These earrings are 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 Islans 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.
