The New Zealand Greenstone, or Pounamu stone, has gentle, soothing energies bring tranquility into a person’s life. Pounamu is considered a taonga (sacred) to Māori. The most significant property of the stone is that it symbolises the authenticity of the bonds that are shared with friends and family around us.

Therefore, the stone can be used as an emblem of friendship, love, and appreciation for an important loved one in your life. 

Kawakawas large, heart-shaped leaves were a Māori symbol for courage and fortitude, while a branch of kawakawa laid on the marae was regarded as an aituā, signifying mourning and death.

This beauty is made right here in Aotearoa.
