In my raw form, I am pure, I am of this Earth... PURE POUNAMU
A very cool piece of Jade. Wear this pendant PURE POUNAMU and over time watch the stone change with wear. It will darken and soften in appearance, become a silky smooth pendant, a trusted and beautiful companion.
This large sized matau pendant was carved for us by Ric Moor. PURE POUNAMU is a bound Matau, carved with Ric's beautiful craftsmanship. We love how Ric has carved smooth and clean curves into this hook, to fully appreciate this, have a look at the video.
Ric tells us that he prefers this soft matte finish to a higher polish because, with time and wear, the pendant will adapt and change with the owners lifestyle and become a 'personal' piece. Well if this becomes better it will be pretty amazing because the jade is beautiful right as it is!
Watch the brief video we have made of it slowly revolving. It will reveal all the angles and subtle variations in colour, and maybe help you imagine how this piece will make you feel when you slip it over your head.
The Hook - Matau: the wearer of a Hei-Matau is seen as a provider and protector who is strong willed and determined to succeed in life - what a lovely sentiment to gift to someone important to you.
Shipped to you with DHL Express Courier and will be provided with our 'Kia Ora Cards' explaining the meaning behind the hook design.
