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.
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 approx 43mm (1.7 inches) long by 34mm (1.4 inch) wide. It comes with a sivler chain and attractive wooden gift box.
