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 60mm long and 30mm wide, this piece has been carved nice and thin in order to show off its beautiful transparency and that storm of inclusions. It's also been made small and light enough to suit even the most petite wearer; so it's great for those who want something that's attractive but not too large.
