Tangiwai is said by some stories to be a beautiful maiden turned into stone. Her grieving husband cried over her body and his tears were caught in the stone forever. This Tangiwai displays features of seascapes in its depths. Unlike Nephrite pounamu, Tangiwai is transparent (not translucent like Nephrite). Never used as tooling, Tangiwai has always lent itself to becoming jewellery and has been valued for its soulful beauty
A rare and valuable stone carved with love and attention.
Our stock of Tangiwai is very limited.
Already Ancient Aotearoa hand make all their stones in Aotearoa NZ. No two stones are the same!
Sometimes we need to just have some time out perhaps this is when we most need to be held.
"Hoa/ friend" is a part of the "kaitiaki series". Kaitiaki are guardians and we use these kaitiaki to empower ourselves, people and places. Hoa represents a state solitude.
We made this piece as a friend to be with us always. We turn to our life partners for honest and consistent reflection. Friends help and guide us. We made this stone for someone who cares to carries people.
