A stunning piece of greenstone (taonga) that would make the perfect gift for those that have everything.

The heart shape represents love or friendship and the Koru represents new life or new beginnings, growth, harmony and peace.

Greenstone called nephrite jade by geologists, pounamu by Maori and greenstone by early settlers. This material is mainly sourced from the West Coast of the South Island, NZ.

Pounamu was originally carved and sharpened into weapons and tools as well as decorative ornaments. The natural beauty of the pounamu has many colour variations and classifications. Pounamu is regarded as precious and given as a taonga (gift) it is an honour to receive.

Pounamu is a treasured taonga of the Maori people. Pounamu is carved in many symbols which are significantly spiritual to Maori. Such symbols represent ancestry, connection to the natural environment or attributes like love, harmony, friendship, prosperity, strength and new life etc.
