Kahurangi Matau. The matau is modelled on the shape of a fish hook - such as the one used by Maui, a figure in Maori mythology, to fish up the North Island (Te Ika a Maui). It is a symbol of strength, good luck and safe travel, especially across water.
Kahurangi Pounamu is a translucent, lightish green pounamu with lighter streaks (which look like clouds) and free from dark spots or any flaws. It is one of the rarest varieties of Pounamu.

Hand carved in New Zealand.


Authentic New Zealand greenstone.
