Gem Quality Marsden Greenstone Putiputi Pendant by Moreton Jewellery


Gem Quality Marsden Greenstone Putiputi Pendant by Moreton Jewellery

This pendant is carved from the highest gem grade Marsden Flower Greenstone. The greenstone is stunning translucent green, really some of the finest greenstone we have come across.

The pendant is a contemporary design which the artist calls Putiputi as it is inspired by the Putiputi flower which is used in flax weaving. The interlocking weave of the pendant represent Ara i te Ora, or the Path of Life. The symbol of eternity is represented, and the single, double and triple twists symbolize the joining of two people or two cultures for eternity. While people will inevitably experience ups and downs, they will remain connected forever. This is truly an amazing pendant with a polished finish.

This Putiputi pendant is a one off unique piece and will not be available again.

This pendant is carved from the finest translucent piece of Marsden Flower Jade/Greenstone. Traditionally Marsden greenstone features several colours and gradients from yellow to dark green, this is usually from the outer part of the greenstone boulder, the centre of the boulder is where you find the best greenstone, the clearest and more translucent. This pendant is fashioned from the finest jewellery grade Marsden greenstone.

New Zealand Greenstone
When the first white settlers arrived on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand they found that the maoris were using tough, hard and very beautiful green stone to make war weapons, cutting and carving tools and articles for personal adornment.

The Maori called the stone Pounamu, which liberally translated means Green Stone, The settlers ignorant of the fact that the stone was in fact nephrite Jade, put the two words together and gave it the distinctive name - Greenstone and it is still known in New Zealand by this name.

Carved by Deane Moreton

With over 40 years experience in sourcing and handcrafting New Zealand Greenstone, Deane Moreton of Moreton Jewellery is one of New Zealand's leading experts.

Diameter: 43mm
