SCOTT PARKER NZ GREENSTONE POUNAMU NEPHRITE FLOWER JADE MAORI PYRAMID HEI TOKI. I'M SO EXCITED TO BE ABLE TO OFFER YOU THE STUNNING WORK OF NEW ZEALAND MASTER CARVER SCOTT PARKER. SCOTT IS A MUCH ADMIRED AND ACCLAIMED ARTIST WHOSE WORK CAN BE FOUND IN GALLERIES AND MUSEUMS HERE IN AOTEAROA NZ. THIS IS AN EXQUISITELY CARVED NEW ZEALAND GEM GRADE MUSEUM QUALITY GOLD AND RICH GREEN PATTERNED NEW ZEALAND POUNAMU RAUKARAKA FLOWER JADE MAORI HEI TOKI PYRAMID SHAPED ADZE.

Hand carved and perfectly finished OUTSTANDING JADE WITH LUMINOUS PATTERNS AND SHADES from the MARSDEN area of the South Island of New Zealand. It measures 2" on the longest side by 1.5" at the base and has a substantial three dimensional sculptural depth of 8mms. It's expertly bound with traditional crossover lashing and suspended on a superstrong BLACK waxed beautifully hand braided adjustable cord. It comes with a certificate of authenticity - guaranteed NZ pounamu jade. The Maori Hei Toki Adze is a symbol of chieftainship, craftsmanship and strength.

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! All other buyers may choose this option if required.
