A Bone Matua (Fish Hook) is a stylized and hand crafted New Zealand Maori pendant. These pendants represent prosperity, abundance, fertility and strength. Hei Matua can also be symbols of power and authority in Maori culture and as such are held in high esteem by Maori people. Not recommended to wear stained pendants in water as constant exposure over a long period of time could affect the staining.
