Mako Shark Tooth Necklace
The Maori word for shark is "Mako".
Polynesians believed the shark to be a spirit animal which guarded them from danger.
Mako teeth are prized by the Maori people and are worn as jewelry by tribal leaders and warriors for protection.
This stunning modern Mako tooth pendant is surrounded by moss agate, verdigris bronze, ostrich shell and gold vermeil beads.
The focal point is a burnished 1.125" Mako shark tooth.
