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 62mm long and 30mm wide, this lightweight yet elegantly-curved piece shows vivid whitish striping on its surface, yet a beautiful evenness in the presentation of its internal patterning and inclusion placement. Carved to be both lightweight and gently curved, it's a comfortable, attractive and inexpensive piece suitable for everyday wear.
