Kawakawa Greenstone Toki Pendant by Ngai Tahu

(NTP042)


Kawakawa Greenstone Toki Pendant by Ngai Tahu

A truly beautiful pendant of New Zealand Kawakawa Pounamu / greenstone. The pendant is in the style of the Maori Toki. The pendant is a toki or adze, Traditionally the Maori Adze was used as a large chisel to tool used for smoothing rough-cut wood in hand woodworking, Maori also attribute the spiritual meaning of Strength and Power to the Toki.

This pendant is carved from Kawakawa greenstone / Pounamu, This rawstone is Kawakawa, the darkest and strongest form of Pounamu. Its colour ranges from a medium green to a dark forest green, and is not typically translucent. It is named for the native kawakawa plant which traditionally used for its culinary and medicinal properties. Endless combinations of Pounamu types occur, and no two pieces are the same guaranteeing that your Pounamu is unique.

This is a one off unique piece and has it's own individual code to trace it's history and will not be available again.

Authentic greenstone
Every piece of pounamu has a story. With these pieces you can find out yours. Ngai Tahu, the kaitiaki (guardians) of New Zealand greenstone, have developed a system for verifying the authenticity of every Pounamu item they carve.

Along with this pendant you will be given a unique code which you can enter on a special site online and find out about this pendant's source, stone and region, it's whakapapa (history & genealogy), and about the artist that carved it.

By buying this authentic Ngai Tahu Pounamu piece, you can be sure that you are buying genuine New Zealand jade (rather than imported or black market Jade). It also guarantees that the Pounamu has been extracted by legitimate means, and treated using appropriate cultural values.
