New Zealand Greenstone Hook Pendant 43mm
This pendant (43mm x 28mm) is in the shape of a stylised Maori fish hook known as the hei-matau (pronounced hay-may-tow), matau meaning hook.
It is believed that the hei-matau and many other fish-like amulets, more common in the south, may have been worn as talismans during fishing expeditions.
The pendant comes to you on a long traditional waxed adjustable cord, information card and gift pouch.
A wonderful gift for friends or between family members. A spiritual keepsake.
This piece of Greenstone is from the Hokitika in New Zealand.
