Tangiwai is the most ancient form of pounamu. It is bowenite rock, which is different in composition to the more common nephrite.

Tangiwai takes its name from the tears that come from great sorrow. Tangi means “to cry” and wai means “water”, or “tears”. Koko-tangiwai, the longer name for this stone, refers to a deep sorrow that is never completely healed.

Pull up your hair, throw your shoulders back, get these pounamu earrings on and feel like a pirinihehe in these exquisite beauties.
