Tekea the Great Shark Tooth Necklace
One-of-a-kind fossilized shark tooth statement necklace adorned with hand-strung Heishi shells. The legend of Tekea comes from the Cook Islands, where he was known as the king of all sharks and notorious for his kind acts of rescuing a woman named Ina, who almost drowned on her way to meet her soulmate, Tinirau, the God of the Ocean. Shark teeth are believed to represent great strength and embody divine masculine energy, promoting both protection and self-confidence. They're believed to symbolize guardianship, knowledge, and curiosity. Sharks continually shed their teeth; some Cacharhiniformes shed approximately 35,000 teeth in a lifetime, replacing those that fall out.
