In Maori, the native New Zealand people, myth Maui used a magic fish hook carved from the jawbone of his grandmother to pull up New Zealand’s North Island from the bottom of the ocean in the form of a huge fish. Because of this strong connection wearing our Maui fish hook jade pendant over water will ensure safe passage because it shows a level of respect to the God of the sea for the bounty he provides.
