Genuine New Zealand Pounamu (Greenstone), sourced and hand carved in Aotearoa (New Zealand). Pounamu is of great cultural signicance for Maori and is believed to enhance mana (prestige) of its possesor. When received as a gift Pounamu is said to gain value as a special treasure.
The Koru is representative of a new fern leaf unfurling; symbolising new life, growth, strength and peace. It is a widely recognised symbol of New Zealand, a land of ferns.
