These toki pendant pieces are individually hand-carved from genuine New Zealand greenstone. Each raw-stone has unique characteristics formed over millions of years, giving every carved piece it’s own identity, colour and character.
Your Pounamu is incredibly strong and durable, however it is also very dense and does not absorb shock very well. Due to the intricate nature of some of the carvings, dropping or hitting your Pounamu against a hard surface could cause hairlines cracks or breaks.
Pounamu polishes and shines itself by absorbing the natural oils from your skin over time, enhancing and brightening the lustre. You can clean your Pounamu with a gentle soap if needed, but strong chemical cleaners should always be avoided.
Each piece comes with an information card and a guarantee of authenticity.
The toki shape is widely regarded to represent strength, determination and providence.
