“Little Blue” pounamu toki

This is just a gorgeous wee blue pounamu toki. Small enough that a child could easily wear it. However, it would look equally at home on a teenager or adult.  This blue pounamu is just fascinating and fun.  And you won’t find anyone else with a pounamu toki like this one, I would bet on it, this is a 100% unique and original blue pounamu toki.

  • Length 55mm
  • Strung on an adjustable cord so you can wear it at your perfect length.
The Story

This blue pounamu is a rare find.

The Toki was one of the most important tool for Māori and were used for any number of everyday jobs such cutting down trees, carving out waka, digging ground, Moa hunting and food preparations. Because the toki had to be strong to endure the cutting and scraping motions of its use it became a symbol of strength(particularity in time of adversity), courage and fortitude. It was also worn by elders as a symbol of power, wisdom and authority.
