Mako Shark Tooth and Carnelian Necklace
Carnelian: The Stone of Good Fortune
This intense orange stone was believed to ward off evil spirits and bring the wearer good luck.
The carnelian was associated with key figures in Egyptian culture.
It was called "sunset" and befittingly used in the headdress of the sun god Ra.
The gem was depicted as the right eye of Horus.
Isis would bury a carnelian "tyet" amulet to protect the dead on their journey to the afterworld.

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.
