WHIORAU

This is a significant carving - a visually stunning pendant carved from a beautiful piece of New Zealand Auhunga Jade. 

Auhunga is a jade that sits between the pale milky green Inanga and the brighter darker green Kawakawa - it is the stone that provides a bridge between the two, and this produces these wonderful colour mixes!

WHIORAU is a wonderful exemplar of the hook - the matau. Beautifully carved with fine detail and in a manner that does not distract from the beauty of the stone.

The Hei-Matau is a powerful symbol representing prosperity, abundance and fertility. It is also believed to provide good luck and safety when travelling over water.

We have bound this with our adjustable cord. Also included, one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the hook design.

Delivery with DHL Express Courier is included in the price.
