VINTAGE COLLECTIBLE WHIU WHAATA MAORI ART ONEWA STONE INLAID NZ PAUA HEI MATAU. SO PROUD TO BE OFFERING YOU THIS STUNNING ART WORK - A VINTAGE COLLECTIBLE WHIU WHAATA HAND CARVED MAORI ONEWA STONE HEI MATAU FISH HOOK - COMPLETELY ONE OF KIND.

NZ BLACK SMOOTH FLAWLESS ONEWA STONE INLAID WITH A BEAUTIFUL TURQUOISE CABOCHON OF IRIDESCENT NS PAUA SHELL.. IT'S EXPERTLY BOUND, DESIGNED, EXQUISITELY CARVED AS A THREE DIMENSIONAL CURVED FISH HOOK PERFECTLY FINISHED by New Zealand Maori TOHUNGA WHAKAIRO WHIU WHAATA KNOWN FOR HIS COMPLETELY UNIQUE WORK.

IT COMES WITH MY AUTHENTICITY CARD. ONEWA STONE WAS GREATLY PRIZED BY MAORI PEOPLE AND USED FOR TOOLS AND IMPLEMENTS. This stunning carved MATAU measures 2.5" by 1.6" with a curving depth of 5/8 expertly bound onto a superstrong hand braided black waxed adjustable cord.. Pounamu is found only in the South Island of New Zealand. Because of this, the island was originally named Te Whi Pounamu (the place of pounamu), but over time this name changed to Te Wai Pounamu (the greenstone waters).

No other jade should be classified as pounamu as it is a Maori name for the stone. There are ten main types of pounamu. Arahura - a dark velvet green. Inanga - pale blue or green - can be opaque or translucent.

Totoweka - a rare type - streaked or spotted with red. Kahotea - dark green with darker inclusions. Kawakawa - rich leaf green sometimes with dark freckling. Kohuwai - a misty grey blue with vivid bright green - like moss in a stream. Kokopu - sometimes called troutstone - silver or golden green with brown freckling.

Kahurangi - emerald clear green sometimes with white feathering - highly prized. Raukaraka - called Flower Jade - varied greens with gold/orange blooms. Tangiwai - bowenite - found only in certain areas of Aotearoa NZ - dark blue/green - exceptional translucence. The carvings I offer are priced incredibly reasonably for genuine artist carved NZ POUNAMU which will soon become impossible to obtain. All my pendants are blessed in the Maori tradition.

All my photos are taken outside in natural light - no digital enhancement - no photoshopping - what you see is what you get! The main deposits used by Mori are in the districts around the Taramakau and Arahura rivers in Westland, coastal south Westland and the Lake Wakatipu area in Otago. In addition, there is a significant field of bowenite in Milford Sound (Piopiotahi). Traditionally, the pounamu in the Arahura River has been most important for Poutini Ngi Tahu (Ngi Tahu people on the West Coast), with the junction of this river and Waitaiki (Olderog) Stream being particularly important.

Authentic Pounamu Jade + Bone Carvings from Aotearoa New Zealand, the land of the Maori people and the inspiring scenery you saw in Lord of the Rings! All other buyers may choose this option if required. It weighs 30gms, Pounamu is found only in the South Island of New Zealand. Because of this, the island was originally named Te Wahi Pounamu (the place of pounamu), but over time this name changed to Te Wai Pounamu (the greenstone waters).
