ONE OF KIND NZ GREENSTONE POUNAMU NEPHRITE JADE BOUND MAORI HEI TIKI TAIAHA. STUNNING HAND CARVED MAORI TRADITIONALLY BOUND HEI TIKI TAIAHA - COMPLETELY ONE OF KIND - GEM GRADE NEW ZEALAND DEEP GREEN AND GOLDEN OLIVE GREEN RAUKARAKA FLOWER JADE GREENSTONE POUNAMU PENDANT DESIGNED, CARVED, AND PERFECTLY FINISHED by New Zealand master carver Ezster Szigethy whose work is much sought after and on display in New Zealand galleries. This jade is from the Marsden area of the South Island of New Zealand. AN EXQUISITE PIECE OF WORK, measuring 3.8" by 1.5" at the widest part, with a rounded three dimensional SCULPTED depth of 9mms.

Velvety and highly tactile, it has traditional red sealing wax eyes, and is engraved with traditional Maori designs.. It's bound with traditional red crossover lashinh onto a superstrong hand braided black waxed cord with red/black adjustable sliding knots.

It comes with a certificate of authenticity - guaranteed NZ pounamu jade. THIS IS A HIGHLY COLLECTIBLE PIECE OF WEARABLE ART, REPRESENTING THE TOP OF A MAORI SPEAR - CHALLENGE AND PROSPERITY. Pounamu is found only in the South Island of New Zealand. 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. There are ten main types of pounamu.

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

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

Kahurangi - emerald clear green sometimes with white feathering - highly prized. Raukaraka - called Flower Jade - varied greens with gold/orange blooms. 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 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 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. Authentic Pounamu Jade + Bone Carvings from Aotearoa New Zealand, the land of the Maori people and the inspiring scenery you saw in Lord of the Rings!
