New Zealand Greenstone / Pounamu
Greenstone or Pounamu Called nephrite jade by geologist, pounamu by Maori, and greenstone by early settlers, this mineral is mainly sourced from West Coast of the South Island. Pounamu was always the most precious of things for Maori. Because of its hardness and toughness, it made the best tools, the best weapons, as well as the most beautiful ornaments, and was regarded like diamonds. Greenstone is regarded as precious and given as a taonga (gift) it is an honour to receive
What Maori call their spiritual connectedness with Jade, has led all New Zealanders to love and respect it, and to regard it as our National Stone.
