Greenstone Oval Kowhaiwhai Pattern Pendant
Oval New Zealand greenstone pendant (2.2 cm wide by 3.4 cm long) carved with a diagonal kowhaiwhai pattern and black cord.
Made from genuine New Zealand Pounamu, or greenstone, sourced and hand-carved in Aotearoa New Zealand. Pounamu is of great cultural significance for Maori and is believed to enhance the mana, or prestige, of its possessor. When received as a gift, Pounamu is said to gain value as a special treasure.
