Urutapu Kōuma – Marsden Flower Jade Breastplate

Kōuma is your sternum or breastbone.  These large pounamu taonga are named as such because they sit majestically on your breastbone, accentuating it and protecting it.

Urutapu is to be pure, untouched, natural.  Tim left one side of this kōuma uncut and unpolished so you can feel the pounamu its natural, raw state against your skin. Leaving you feeling grounded, at home, secure.
