Pounamu Pebble Roimata – Dendritic Kokopu
This taonga is one gorgeous pounamu pebble that Tim lightly sanded back to reveal its inner beauty. Hence it has a wonderful organic shape and feel to it, as the taonga holds its natural form. With dendritic veins of black and red, the three whanau notches just felt like the right thing to do. This is a magical raw pounamu taonga that fits into the hand perfectly, for those who like to hold their taonga.
⭐️A one-of-a-kind taonga by Timoti, so you can be assured your taonga is as unique as you are.
⭐️112mm length x 75mm wide
This wee pounamu pebble would have been sitting in a high mineral bath for many thousands of years. Over time some of these minerals seep into hairline fractures creating beautiful whispy patterns in the pounamu, these are the dendrites. Pounamu from the Whakatu region tends to have more dendritic corruption due to the high amount of minerals in this area.
