Maunga pounamu – dark green pounamu pendant

Tim left some of the rind on this beautiful maunga pounamu necklace so you can enjoy the earthy mountainous colour. The swirls of pattern and layers of depth inside are just stunning. You really can see into the stone with this one.

Tim gently curved the back so it sits comfortably on your breastbone.  So you can carry your maunga of strength, of whanau, of your tūpuna with you where ever you go.

⭐️ One-of-a-kind taonga by Timoti, so you can be assured your taonga is as unique as you are.

⭐️ 118mm long x 50mm wide

The Story

We carve pounamu triangles because they represent the maunga which are at the centre of who we are and where we come from. Your maunga sits amongst the centre of your pepeha. 

Maunga are the heights of the feminine beauty of Papatūānuku. And they are her tendrils of love reaching high for Ranginui. Ranginui and Tawhirimatea always reside with Papatuanuku wherever her maunga pierces the veil of the sky.  

Maunga bring emotional stability and strength, for the roots of a maunga go deeper then it’s height, down into the very heart of Papatūānuku. 

Maunga are strong and resilient, they can be shaken but they will not break.  But maunga also change over time as weathering shapes them, just as we are shaped by our experiences in life.
