Collection: Greenstone Jade Carvings

Greenstone jade, also known as pounamu in Maori culture, is a highly revered and culturally significant stone found in New Zealand. Renowned for its rich green hues and smooth texture, greenstone jade holds deep spiritual and symbolic importance for the indigenous Maori people.

Traditionally, pounamu was highly valued by Maori tribes, who used it to craft tools, weapons, and ornaments, as well as for ceremonial purposes. Today, greenstone jade continues to be treasured as a symbol of strength, prosperity, and connection to the land.

Maori artisans meticulously carve greenstone jade into various forms, including intricate pendants, carvings, and sculptures, each imbued with its own unique cultural significance. These pieces often feature traditional Maori designs and motifs, reflecting the rich spiritual and cultural heritage of the Maori people.

Wearing jewelry or owning objects made from greenstone jade is not only a way to appreciate its natural beauty but also a means of honoring Maori traditions and connecting with the spiritual essence of New Zealand's landscapes. Greenstone jade serves as a tangible link to the past and a symbol of enduring cultural identity for both Maori and non-Maori alike.
