Here is a beautiful 8mm Koa & Puka Shell Necklace 16"
In ancient Hawaii, Koa wood was harvested exclusively for the alii class or royalty. The huge logs were crafted into sculpted images of gods, personal containers and canoes for royalty. It is said that when the early Hawaiians wished to choose a Koa tree for a canoe, they found one which the elepaio bird had not been pecking.
