Pounamu is the Maori name for nephrite jade, also commonly referred to as New Zealand greenstone. With qualities of rarity, beauty of colour, translucency and toughness for weapons and tools it was the most precious material to pre-European Maori and it is still revered by them today. It also heavier than most stone and feels lovely to the touch making it ideal for pendants and other ornaments that become more personal the more they are worn and handled.
