Aroha Stone (Piemontite Schist)
A beautiful variety of schist that can be found in many regions throughout New Zealand, Aroha, or Piemontite schist, is known for its pink and purple tones that can range from soft and dusty to deep and vibrant. This stone is named after the Māori word for love, an apt title given its romantic colouration and the shimmer caused by the mica found within the stone. We source our aroha from throughout Otago and along the West Coast.
Aroha is said to contain healing energy that is best suited for those who carry trauma or are suffering from addiction.
