Australian Black/Green Jade Maori Fish Hook Hei Matau Necklace. Genuine Hand Carved Australian Black Jade Comes with an adjustable , bound black cord.
Australian Black jade is, in fact, a true nephrite green jade. Higher levels of iron give it a black appearance. Various amounts, hints, of green may be visible--especially when held to the light.
The Hei Matau (Fish Hook) represents strength, prosperity, abundance, fertility, and great respect for the sea. It is also a symbol of good luck and safety over water.
Packaging includes the name of the piece and a description of its meaning.
