Lashed Kakotea Hei Toki Pendant by Moreton Jewellery


Lashed Kakotea Hei Toki Pendant by Moreton Jewellery

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

This pendant is in the style of a 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 Kakotea greenstone / Pounamu. The greenstone in the piece is very beautiful with contrasting green colours. The greenstone used in this piece is known as Kakotea which is a streaky dark green pounamu with black spots.

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

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.

The piece measures 67mm (2.64 inches) long by 40mm (1.6 inch) wide. It comes lashed with a brown adjustable cord, attractive pouch and meaning card.
