The Hei Matau / hook gives the wearer strength and determination.
It brings peace, prosperity and good health.
It also provide the wearer with a safe journey through life - both a safe physical journey, especially over water and also helps them get through any hardships and tough times they may face.
The Hei Matau has a waxed nylon cord so the pendant can be worn ALL the time. It is extremely strong and is made to be worn all the time - even in the water. The cord is adjustable by pinching the special knots between your thumb and finger and pulling.
The back of the Hei Matau is scalloped/shaped so that it is comforting to rub with the thumb while it is being worn.
The Pounamu for this Hei Matau was collected from the South Westland area on the West Coast of the South Island in New Zealand.
The pendant is 44mm in length and 22mm at its widest.
