A contemporary drop pendant - carved from our stunning Tangiwai Pounamu. This is a one-off piece carved to accentuate the natural beauty of this particular piece of stone.
Tangiwai is an interesting stone. It is rarer than jade and is found in Anita Bay - one small area in Piopiotahi, The Milford Sounds. If you've ever travelled down to the South Western corner of New Zealand, that is home to this marvellous stone, you'll appreciate the beauty of this region - and this is a little piece of that magic!
Tangiwai is the most ancient form of pounamu and takes its name from the Māori 'tangi' - to cry and 'wai' - water, 'tears of sorrow'. It is the perfect stone for a drop-shaped pendant.
This pendant is beautifully carved. It is streamlined, lightly curved front to back and polished to a soft gleam. Take a look at the video and you will best see the drop's shape and the fractured nature of the stone.
The drop shaped pendant is known as a comfort stone and is worn to soothe, heal and provide positive energy.
In New Zealand this shape is called 'roimata' and is a stylised, softer version of the toki.
