New Zealand Raukaraka Greenstone Contemporary Hei Toki Pendant

(KTG57)


New Zealand Raukaraka Greenstone Contemporary Hei Toki Pendant

A wonderful piece of Raukaraka Greenstone greenstone from the south island of New Zealand.

This pendant is in the Contemporary take on a traditional Toki of the Maori Adze, or Toki Pou Tangata. Traditionally the Maori Adze was used as a large chisel to tool used for smoothing rough-cut wood in hand woodworking, however in wartimes the adze or toki are known to have been used by Maori warriors. The Maori also attribute the spiritual meaning of Strength and Power to the Toki.

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

This pendant is carved from Raukaraka greenstone / Pounamu, Raukaraka is the kawakawa variety that is olive green. The word literally means the leaf of the karaka tree. It may be descriptive of the leaf but, nonetheless, the origin of the name is uncertain. It is referred to as a Taonga, treasured thing, and it should be worn with respect and pride, it should be given with love.

New Zealand greenstone
When the first white settlers arrived on the West Coast of the South Islands 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.

The piece measures 67mm long by 24mm wide. It comes lashed on a natural adjustable cord, attractive gift box and meaning card.
