Roimata/Teardrop - Named for their teardrop shape, meaning tears of sadness or grief, and are widely regarded as touchstones in healing and meditation. It is often called the comfort stone and given to show sympathy, shared emotion and that they, the receiver, is not alone in their grief. The drop pendants are also believed to represent a connection to the whenua (the land) Aotearoa (New Zealand).

This a Genuine West Coast Inanga Greenstone from the Arahura River area, West Coast. A grey-green colour. It is either very translucent or quite opaque. Highly prized by the Maori and the desired material for making Mere and Patu. The most prized Greenstone in New Zealand is flower jade, Greenstone with pale green or ochre clouds of colour. This distinctive patterning and colouring comes from the outside rim or 'rind' of the greenstone boulders or stones where the surface has oxidised.
