COLLECTIBLE ONE OF KIND VAN RIEL NZ POUNAMU ARAHURA JADE MAORI SACRED PEKAPEKA. SUPERB MUSEUM QUALITY COLLECTIBLE ONE OF KIND NZ MAORI ARAHURA POUNAMU NEPHRITE JADE PEKAPEKA PENDANT by New Zealand Stone Artist JEROMY VAN RIEL. &#######xA0; Jeromy's carvings are all completely hand carved and sanded with his own unique artefact like designs. &#######xA0; They are on show at our national museum Te Papa, and in other galleries in Aotearoa. Our Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, proudly wears one of Jeromy's magical pendants.

Fabulous FLAWLESS DEEP IVY GREEN JADE. &#######xA0; Carved on both sides with inlaid NZ paua shell ringed eyes - on one side is the face of a Maori tipuna (ancestor). RARE AND BEAUTIFUL STONE FROM THE SOUTH ISLAND OF NEW ZEALAND.

THE PEKAPEKA REPRESENTS THE NATIVE BAT, AND IS SAID TO BE A PROTECTOR AT NIGHT WITH MYSTIC POWERS GIVEN BY TANE, GOD OF THE FOREST, AND THE ANCESTORS. This fabulous piece measures 2.9" by 1.3" with rounded three dimensional depth.

&#######xA0;It is bound and suspended on an 18 hand braided black waxed cord with a hand carved jade toggle. A beautifully tactile heirloom piece. The carvings I offer are priced incredibly reasonably for genuine artist carved&#######xA0;NZ POUNAMU which will soon become impossible to obtain. All my pendants are blessed in the Maori tradition. &#######xA0;All my photos are taken outside in natural light - no digital enhancement - no photoshopping - what you see is what you get!

Pounamu is found only in the South Island of New Zealand. Because of this, the island was originally named Te W&######x101;hi Pounamu (the place of pounamu), but over time this name changed to Te Wai Pounamu (the greenstone waters). No other jade should be classified as pounamu as it is a Maori name for the stone. There are ten main types of pounamu. &#####x2022;Arahura - a dark velvet green.

&#####x2022;Inanga - pale blue or green - can be opaque or translucent. &#####x2022;Totoweka - a rare type - streaked or spotted with red. &#####x2022;Kahotea - dark green with darker inclusions. &#####x2022;Kawakawa - rich leaf green sometimes with dark freckling.

&#####x2022;Kohuwai - a misty grey blue with vivid bright green - like moss in a stream. &#####x2022;Kokopu - sometimes called troutstone - silver or golden green with brown freckling.

&#####x2022;Kahurangi - emerald clear green sometimes with white feathering - highly prized. &#####x2022;Raukaraka - called Flower Jade - varied greens with gold/orange blooms. &#####x2022;Tangiwai - bowenite - found only in certain areas of Aotearoa NZ - dark blue/green - exceptional translucence. The main deposits used by M&######x101;ori are in the districts around the Taramakau and Arahura rivers in Westland, coastal south Westland and the Lake Wakatipu area in Otago. In addition, there is a significant field of bowenite in Milford Sound (Piopiotahi).

Traditionally, the pounamu in the Arahura River has been most important for Poutini Ng&######x101;i Tahu (Ng&######x101;i Tahu people on the West Coast), with the junction of this river and Waitaiki (Olderog) Stream being particularly important. &#######xA0;Please be prepared for postal delay at these uncertain times.
