Kauri forests once covered much of the&#######xA0;North Island&#######xA0;of New Zealand, before&#######xA0;M&######x101;ori&#######xA0;and&#######xA0;European settlers&#######xA0;caused&#######xA0;deforestation, causing several areas to revert to&#######xA0;sand dunes, &#######xA0;scrubs, and&#######xA0;swamps. Even afterward, ancient kauri fields continued to provide a source for the gum and the remaining forests. Kauri gum formed when resin from kauri trees leaked out through fractures or cracks in the bark, hardening with the exposure to air.

Lumps commonly fell to the ground and became covered with soil and forest litter, eventually&#######xA0;fossilising. Other lumps formed as branches forked or trees were damaged, which released the resin. 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. 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&#######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.
