Greenstone Jade Maori Jewelry ( we spell it jewellery here in New Zealand) is Maori designs created out of greenstone jade. New Zealand greenstone is called pounamu in the Maori language. It’s a type of nephrite jade also found in Canada and Russia. Maori knew how to craft this hard rock into beautiful jewellery and implements. Choose from Maori designs, each with its own spiritual meaning. Most Maori agree that pounamu should be gifted, or you ask someone else to put it round your neck. Shipped worldwide.
