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 56mm long and 23mm wide at its widest point, this lightweight, slender little piece has been carved to show off its transparency, yet also as a piece small enough for even the most petite wearer. It's inexpensive nature makes it an excellent first piece for a child wearer; and yet, its excellent colour, clarit and pattern suit it just as well to a smaller adult wearer.
