This edgy pair of Pounamu Marama - Maori Jade Half Moon Earrings are hung with sterling silver hooks and measure 50 x 40 x 1 mm. This pair showcases a beautiful translucency when held up to a light.

Marama represents the shape of the moon and symbolises Te Mauri (life force).

They are blessed by tohunga through Tohi (ceremony) to become a mauri stone. Te Mauri would be suspended from the waka, into the ocean, to guide their vessel to their desired destination.
