Tāwhirimātea chatoyant pounamu pendant

It is hard to show the beauty of this pendant in a photo. The chatoyant silver blue swirls and golden green clouds flash with the movement of Tāwhirimātea pushing clouds around a tempestuous sky. Set on a sterling silver belcher chain this piece is elegance and fun all in one.

Because we want everything we do to be respectful of Papatūānuku we only use chain gathered from local second hand shops, always certified sterling silver.

The Story
Tāwhirimātea is the Māori god who controls the weather, including his offsrping – the four winds, clouds, rain, hail and dew.
The chatoyant beauty of this stone is caused by the high level of tremolite fibres that have been compressed flat which causes them reflect the light.
