New Zealand Greenstone

New Zealand Greenstone, originally uploaded by CarolinaRen.

I still have yet to find the right piece of pounamu, or greenstone, jewelry for me … although I did pick up an inexpensive non-Jade piece symbolizing “eternity” like the middle piece shown here. From the back: “New Zealand is famous for its greenstone, mainly found on specific rivers in the South Islands. The carvings have become iconic treasures and souvenirs.”
