Pounamu Drop Pendants or "Touch Stones"

These simple forms show the stunning diversity of New Zealand's Pounamu (Nephrite Jade)  They are hand carved from some of the rarest and most beautiful jades including Marsden Flower, Kahurangi, Tangiwai and many more.
Photos on the internet just do not do these extraordinary pieces justice.

Many of these special carvings are unique custom or limited edition pieces that will not be repeated on our site and therefore do not appear in our stock catalogue. While the basic shapes may be repeated, the colour, pattern and texture of the special jades from which each is carved makes most pieces totally unique.

Once each piece sells it will be removed from our site permanently.

All carvings are supplied complete with a traditional style cord & bag.
Most cords are hand made from black waxed braid with a loop and bone toggle fitted. A woven flax presentation case and information on the meaning of the design is also included.
