Simple Greenstone Maori Hook Pendant Simple Greenstone Maori Hook Pendant

This beautifully simple New Zealand Greenstone Maori Hook Pendant shows off the natural beauty of New Zealand Pounamu ( Greenstone Jade).

Found only on the west coast of the South Island of New Zealand, greenstone is lovely to wear. Hold it up to the light, and its inner beauty can be seen in all its glory.

Greenstone is revered by New Zealand Maori, who believe that it carries the essence of whoever wears it against their skin. So greenstone pendants are often handed down from one generation to the next, carrying the spirit of the people who have worn it before.

Because of the reverence in which greenstone is held, we can have it blessed for you if you wish, before it makes its journey to you.

The shape of this greenstone pendant is the Maori Fish Hook, Hei Matau. This hook design carries a spiritual meaning. The hook signifies abundance and plenty, strength and determination. It is believed to bring peace, prosperity and good health. The hook is a device for catching good luck and positive energy, and a good luck charm for safe travel over water.

This Greenstone Hook Pendant measures approximately 1 1/2" (4cm) long and comes to you on a traditional black waxed cord, approx 26" (66cm) long. It will be supplied on a card with information detailing the spiritual meaning of the pendant.
