A beautifully carved contemporary drop pendant made from Tangiwai Pounamu. This form is also called a 'Roimata' - these are known as comfort stones and are often worn to provide the wearer with strength and courage when facing a challenge. It is worn to protect, heal and comfort.

This particular drop is a lovely tactile pendant that is beautiful to handle. It is carved from a wonderfully clear piece of stone - hold it up to the light and you will see that it is very translucent, it reveals the inner structure of this rare and beautiful pounamu.

Tangiwai comes from a remote area in the Milford Sounds called Piopiotahi. This is the most ancient form of pounamu and takes its name from the Māori 'tangi' - to cry and 'wai' - water, so the translation means 'tears of sorrow'. 

This piece is streamlined, gloriously curved and polished to a high gloss. Take a look at the video and you will appreciate the artistry of this beautiful piece.

We love Orcas - there is nothing quite like seeing their massive dorsal fin break surface, especially if you are close by!
