New Zealand Greenstone Whale Tail Necklace 50mm


This Greenstone Whale Tail Koru Necklace is a beautiful piece of carving.

The greenstone pendant is carved in a whale tail shape. The whale was a significant spiritual icon for Maori. 

Whales were of huge importance to the Maori as a food and utensil source. The whale is a symbol of great size and intelligence, and carvings of whales appear on some Maori meeting houses or food storehouses. Whales and dolphins were believed to help some Maori navigate their way across the South Pacific during the Great Migration.  Thus Whales and Dolphins are symbols of protection, and today this includes protection for travellers on all modes of transport.

This Whale Tail pendant is 50mm x 30mm.

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.
