All my photos are taken outside in natural light - no digital enhancement - no photoshopping - what you see is what you get! 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 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.
