Tiny Tiki, New Zealand Pounamu (Greenstone)
The Tiki is a very ancient symbol and there are a number of legends in relation to its meaning. Some say the Tiki came from the stars and that he was the first man of the world. Other theories state that Tiki represents the human embryo and represents fertility. He is also believed to have a strong link to the sea - often being depicted with webbed feet.
Tiki was respected as the teacher of all things and the wearer of this symbol is therefore seen to possess clarity of thought, loyalty, great inner knowledge and strength of character.
Tiki is also believed to bring good luck and keep evil spirits away.
