NZ GREENSTONE XLARGE NIHO TANIWHA TOOTH (V141) KAWAKAWA POUNAMU

$220.00

Lovely Flower Jade Pounamu Niho or Tooth. Carved by Allan Moreton.

Taniwha when honoured and respected can be powerful protective guardians not only of people but places as well. With the ability to shape-shift, in the water they could be sharks, giant squids while on land could be dragon like creatures. These kaitiaki (guardians) live in depths of the rivers and sea often where dangerous currents are. They form a connection between the physical world and the spiritual world, ancestors.

Measurements:

126 mm length

22 mm width

13 mm thickness

Comes with an adjustable cord and a jute drawstring bag.

This will be the exact piece you will receive in the photos, there may be a slight degree of colour variation based on different computer or mobile phone screen resolutions that you are viewing from.

BEHIND POUNAMU

Pounamu is so much more than a stone. It holds Wairua (spiritual essence) through its association with the land and its beauty. Each piece lends strength and well-being to the wearer, making it a true gift from the heart. Over time, Pounamu absorbs its owners' natural oils and takes on a beautiful lustre. It is then that the stone's essence becomes one with your own and the stone has truly chosen you.

We love the Pounamu we purchased from these guys and really appreciate how they replaced the cord for us a year later.
