A magical work from mother nature to Match the rising of the Matariki Stars.
The second star is Pōhutukawa, which is connected to the dead and those who have passed away in the past year. Māori belief covers that the spirit leaves the body when a person dies, and then journeys along the pathway of spirits known as Te Ara Wairua. This journey ends at the tip of the North Island at Te Rerenga Wairua where an ancient Pōhutukawa tree stands on a rocky ledge towards the ocean. The spirits then descend the aka (root) of the tree entering the underworld.
You can look upon this star in reflection and remembrance of loved ones who have passed.
A rich and varied stone, serpentinite is one of three pounamu stones used in traditional carving, and one of the most recognizable. A metamorphic stone formed from antigorite, lizardite and chrysotile, this wide mix of minerals produce a stone of immense complexity, and individual pieces can contain colours ranging from deep moss green to aquatic blue, with gold, orange, and brown highlights.
A healing stone, serpentinite replenishes and restores energies within the body and creates a protective field around its wearer. Sometimes porous, serpentinite can absorb oils from your skin and its colour may deepen over time - this should not be seen as a flaw but as part of the stone’s natural evolution with its wearer.
