Because of this, the island was originally named Te Whi 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. The main deposits used by Mori 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 Ngi Tahu (Ngi Tahu people on the West Coast), with the junction of this river and Waitaiki (Olderog) Stream being particularly important.
