Beautiful Kawakawa Pounamu from Hokitika in the South Island of New Zealand, Aotearoa.
Carved by Benjamin and bound by Marisa using black waxed thread with slip knots making the pendant easily adjustable in length.
The stone is 74mm in length x 42mm in width x 10mm at its thickest point towards the base.
The modern Toki is worn as a symbol of mana, strength, authority and leadership.
The NZ pounamu in this pendant is certified by Ngai Tahu and comes with a certificate of authentication with its own unique traceability code. When entered online, the code attached to the carving identifies the origin and whakapapa (genealogy) of the stone.
Our pounamu was blessed in its raw form before it was gifted to us. We handle each taonga with customary respect and every possible care.
