All Pounamu is sacred and highly valued by Ngāti Waewae. Carving this sacred stone has been a cornerstone of our culture for hundreds of years and we are honoured that you have chosen to adorn yourself with this most scared gift.
The beauty of the freeform shape is that you can create your own meaning behind this taonga, based on how you connect to it.
