This Curved Shield Tooth is made from top quality New Zealand Greenstone/Pounamu and comes with a black waxed adjustable cord.
The back is flat while the front raises to a ridge that runs down the middle of the tooth.
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.
The shield gives the wearer strength and offers them protection through their life.
