Pounamu (NZ Greenstone)

The Mãori word for greenstone is pounamu. Greenstone is highly valued by the Mãori and it plays an important role in their culture. It is considered a treasure. This piece of genuine New Zealand greenstone has come from Big Bay in South Westland, New Zealand. It has a special, high quality finish referred to as a ‘tumble’ finish, a fitting reminder of how the greenstone has tumbled from its origins in the mountains and stone-filled rivers of New Zealand, to its final resting place. Over time greenstone absorbs the body’s natural oils, taking on qualities unique to its wearer. Our Evolve New Zealand greenstone is specially blessed to bring good luck.
