All Blacks New Zealand Pounamu Hei Matau Pendant


All Blacks New Zealand Pounamu Hei Matau Pendant

Officially Licenced All Blacks New Zealand Pounamu Range
Strength | Power | Respect

The style of pendant is known as a Hei Matau or Fish Hook design. It 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 New Zealand greenstone / Pounamu, Endless combinations of New Zealand Pounamu types occur, and no two pieces will be the same guaranteeing that your Pounamu is unique.

Authentic greenstone

By buying this authentic All Blacks 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.

The piece measures approx 00mm long by 30mm wide. It comes with an adjustable cord, attractive All Blacks Wooden Gift box and a meaning card.
