The pendant is 47mm in length and 26mm at its widest. It is carved from pounamu we have collected from the Marsden Valley in the Paroa area, just outside of Greymouth, on the West Coast of the South Island.
The Hei Matau has an extremely strong, waxed nylon cord so the pendant can be worn ALL the time - even in any kind of water. The cord is adjustable by pinching the special knots between your thumb and finger and pulling.
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.
