While most bowenite or tangiwai in New Zealand is mostly translucent, there are some examples that generate true transparency... and some locations that are famous for producing this kind of material. This material is from a place in Milford Sound called Poison Bay, which along with Anita Bay is well-known as a source of transparent bowenite of rich green hues. This piece showcases that excellent transparency, as well as the storm of inclusions that can make that transparency so visually spectacular when the piece is held to the light.


Measuring in at 61mm long and 39mm wide at its widest point, this simple hooked form has been carved with a gentle curve and a profile thin enough to allow thelight to pour through it. Its darker hues allow it to blend seamlessly into any outfit, and its negligible weight makes it a comfortable piece for any wearer.
