Inanga. Pearly white, greyish green, and blue can be translucent or very opaque. This type of stone is a highly prized type of pounamu by Poutini Ngāi Tahu. It gets its name from the juvenile native minnow or more commonly known as whitebait. It is a softer stone and when worn it absorbs the natural oils of the body deeply and can turn a lovely light brown.
