FABULOUS DETAILED PYRAMIDAL CARVING WITH TRADITIONAL MAORI CROSSOVER BINDING hand&#######xA0;carved and&#######xA0;perfectly&#######xA0;finished&#######xA0;&#######xA0; OUTSTANDING JADE from the MARSDEN area of the South Island of New Zealand. &#######xA0; It measures 3.2" by 1" at the top, and has&#######xA0; a substantial three dimensional sculptural depth of 1/8.

&#######xA0; It's bound and suspended on a superstrong light brown waxed beautifully hand braided adjustable cord. It comes with a certificate of authenticity - guaranteed NZ pounamu jade. The Maori Rei Niho Shark Tooth is a symbol of strength and vitality believed to protect the sea traveller - worn by Maori men and women. 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. &#####x200B;&#####x200B;&#####x200B;&#####x200B;&#####x200B;&#####x200B;&#####x200B.
