Kahurangi Matau - N201146R

All Pounamu is sacred and highly valued by Ngāi Tahu, the most southern tribe of Aotearoa, New Zealand. 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 Matau represents the search for knowledge. Traditionally the Matau symbolises a safe passage over water.
