For Maori, the native New Zealand people the Roimata shape of our Genuine New Zealand Greenstone pendant stands for healing and comfort , positive energy and reassurance and is often called the comfort stone.
Traditionally the Roimata was given as a token of sympathy during times of sadness, and as a way to acknowledge someone’s loss and offer reassurance that they are not alone in their grief.
Today, Roimata can be a way to acknowledge that life can be tough, when people we love experience difficult times we can let them know that they are cared for. It allows us to show that although we cannot walk the path for someone, we care and we can walk alongside them as token to encourage us to hang on in there. This unique and beautiful piece of genuine New Zealand Greenstone or Pounamu as the Maori people have named it, has been hand carved and then lightly oiled to bring out the natural beauty of the stone.
