PIPIOTAHI - a beautiful, large Roimata pendant.

This is an outstanding piece of Tangiwai Pounamu and it is beautifully showcased in this piece - slender, long, elegant and just a lovely piece to wear! It is a lovely mottled green colour, if you backlight it you can see the striated inclusions that run lengthwise through the stone. This is Tangiwai at its best - rare and beautiful.

PIPIOTAHI - a gorgeous and very meaningful pendant. We will provide this piece with an adjustable cord.

This very large Toki/Drop shaped pendant is known as a comfort stone and is worn to soothe, heal and provide positive energy.

Tangiwai is a rare and interesting stone, scarcer than jade and found in Anita Bay - one small area in PIPIOTAHI, 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 this marvellous pendant.
