This tooth is made from top quality New Zealand Greenstone/Pounamu and is hung from a sterling silver clasp and 42cm sterling silver belcher chain. It is flat on the back and slightly curved across the face.
The shark tooth design represents strength. This is because the mako shark is such a resilient, strong creature that has survived on earth for thousands of years. The thinking is that by wearing a 'tooth' of the shark, it will impart some of this resilience onto the wearer.
