A close relative of nephrite jade, tangiwai or bowenite is a stone greatly prized by the Maori people; and with this particular batch of tangiwai, it's not hard to see why. A smaller piece suited to the more petite wearer, this piece measures in at 54mm long and 22mm wide at its widest point, with delicate white spotting providing a gentle enhancement to its dark grey-green translucency against the body.
Held to the light, however, this piece really comes alive. Bright emerald green internally, it has bold black markings and russet swirls in the body, with subtle white spotting prominent at its edges. A pretty piece for the budget purchaser that's suited to everyday wear, it's owner is sure to appreciate it in the light at every opportunity.
