This beautiful taonga is hand-carved by us into a Breastplate style for protection.
She has vibrant emerald tones of Fuchsite and Kyanite with a translucent Quartz base..
She is becoming very hard to source, we haven't found any Aotea for a few years now, so make sure to treasure her when we are lucky enough to have her.

An incredibly rare stone, Aotea comes from a single river in Westland - the only place in the world where it can be found. Comprised of fuchsite, kyanite, and quartz, Aotea is also known as bluestone due to its brilliant hues that can range from icy blue to deep turquoise. Softer than pounamu, Aotea is generally regarded as a feminine stone, and frequently contains a gem-like glitter due to the mica contained within the quartz.
A grounding stone, Aotea activates the heart and throat chakras and is said to release the inner goddess of its wearer.
