This stunning piece of West Coast Serpentinite was found and carved by us on the South Islands' rugged shorelines.

This beautiful Taongs has dark Blue-grey tones with mineral inclusions scattered throughout. Cut with a thicker Toki style for a nice Weighty Taonga.

Our Toki style is a nice string style for Courage, leadership and strength.

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. ( it will darken this stone)

Findings/Features:

  • - Hand-braided wax polyester extendable cord - Black/Red

  • Size:

  • -  7.5 x3.5.x 1cm deep

About Serpentinite:

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.

Healing Properties:

A healing stone, serpentinite replenishes and restores energies within the body and creates a protective field around its wearer.
