Unique Gemstones – He Kōhatu Ahurei

Based in Ōtautahi (Christchurch) Te Waipounamu (South Island) we source and craft kōhatu (gems) into beautiful protective talismans to protect and empower the wearer.
We work with authentic NZ taonga such as Ngāi Tahu Pounamu (see link below) and other taonga harvested with the consent of their local kaitiaki.

Crystal B Astrology

Our latest range of astro-jewels was inspired by US astrologer Crystal B (who was so inspired by our passion for papatuanuku, the whenua, awa and māunga that yield and protect our taonga kōhatu), that she came to NZ with her dad in March 2017, to do business with the sisters.

Sisters Collective - Taonga

A unique aspect of our business is ‘dressing’ taonga – and we receive many commissions to re-string taonga, either onto precious metal or a strand of mystical gems that will amplify the inherent powers of pounamu/taonga. Our passion is to raise awareness of the old stories and knowledge (mātauranga) associated with kōhatu, as treasures of Papa – Tangaroa.  We use kōhatu to raise awareness of our lands, our waters, and our collective responsibility to look after these special places and treasures for the wellbeing of future generations.
