Called nephrite jade by geologists, pounamu by the Maori and greenstone by early settlers, this mineral is mainly sourced from the west coast of the South Island.
Greenstone was originally carved and shaped into weapons and tools as well as decorative ornaments by the Maori.
The natural beauty of greenstone has many colour variations and classifications.
We stock an extensive range of greenstone products sourced directly from New Zealand.
We carry the traditional drop pendant designs, the fish hook form (Hei Matau), the spiritual guard (Manaia), the spiral form (Koru), the eternity pendants with cross-over form and double cross-over and the Tiki form.
