Laybys welcome! Contact Us today to secure your dream piece.
Dating to around the early 20th century this classic example of a New Zealand nephrite jade or ‘Pounamu’ greenstone heart is quite large at 4cm x 3.5cm not including the impressive and thick 14ct gold bale.

Lustrous and a rich medium to deep green, beautifully speckled when held up to the light, very versatile and can be worn on a gold chain or trend it up and pop it on a green velvet ribbon for those special occasions.

History of Pounamu 

“Pounamu or greenstone are terms for several types of hard and durable stone found in southern New Zealand. They are highly valued in New Zealand, and carvings made from pounamu play an important role in Māori culture. Geologically, pounamu are usually nephrite jade, bowenite, or serpentinite”.
