Genuine New Zealand Pounamu

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.

The Koru represents new life or new beginnings, growth harmony and peace.

The single twist symbol consists of a closed loop with three knots and refers to eternal emerging paths in life. The eight-shaped single twist symbolizes the strength of the bond between two people, their loyalty and friendship.

It signifies the spiritual merger of two people for eternity. Although people will take different paths in their lives they will always be connected and will return to each other.
