COLLECTIBLE RHYS HALL HAND CARVED NZ PAKOHE + AOTEA STONE "DAYDREAMER" PENDANT. ALWAYS A DELIGHT TO HANDLE THE WORK OF ONE OF NEW ZEALAND'S MOST ORIGINAL AND CREATIVE STONE ARTISTS - RHYS HALL, WHOSE WEARABLE ART PENDANTS ARE BEYOND COMPARE - EXQUISITELY CARVED AND FINISHED. RHYS SPECIALIZES IN CARVING SKULLS - EACH ONE ABSOLUTELY UNIQUE AND HIGHLY COLLECTIBLE, hand carved from an NZ greywacke or pakohe beachstone - hours of work in the meticulous detail.

This one has a meticulously carved subtle face and a stunning turquoise Aotea stone (NZ Fuschite) set into the head - called "Daydreamer" by the artist. &#######xA0; &#######xA0; &#####x2028;It&#####x2019;s suspended on an&#######xA0; 18 black hand braided cord with matching pebble toggle. It measures 2" by 1.5"&#######xA0; with a sculptural three dimensional depth of 1/2. Comes with my certificate of authenticity and a signed certificate from Rhys. 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:&#####x2028. &#####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 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. All my photos are taken outside in natural light - no digital enhancement - no photoshopping - what you see is what you get!

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;&#######xA0;All other buyers may choose this option if required. &#####x200B;&#####x200B;&#####x200B;&#####x200B;&#####x200B;&#####x200B;&#####x200B.
