Hand carved for us by Ric Moor, UNIVERSAL MESSAGE is made from New Zealand kawakawa jade. What's cool about this piece is the semi-translucent outer edges revealing the black inclusions that make this type of stone recognisable and unique.
UNIVERSAL MESSAGE is a manaia design. These are considered guardians and were traditionally worn to honour and remember ancestors. This piece is well worthy of that role.
Take a moment to watch the short video we have made which shows the pendant slowly rotating. This will give you a very clear picture of the shape nuances and the colour of the stone - it's well worth the few moments it will take you to watch it.
The Manaia: a mythical being believed to be the invisible light, or aura, surrounding a person. They represent spiritual power and are believed to be the guide that leads the spirits to heaven. They are worn to guide and protect.
This pendant will be delivered to you with Express Courier on a hand plaited adjustable cord. We will also include our 'Kia Ora' card, which explains the meaning behind the Manaia design.
