Description

Authentic greenstone fishhook pendant.

All Pounamu is sacred and highly valued by Ngāi Tahu, the most southern tribe of Aotearoa, New Zealand.

Carving this sacred stone has been a cornerstone of our culture for hundreds of years and we are honoured that you have chosen to adorn yourself with this most scared gift.

This authentic greenstone fishhook pendant represents the search for knowledge. Or ‘mātauranga’ in Maori language. The matau has a connection to Mauī who with the sacred knowledge of his ancestor left Hawaiki and discovered Aotearoa, New Zealand.
