This gorgeous Toki is carved from a rare Otago pink Rhodonite.
Vibrant pink tones with a small number of cream inclusions create a really unique variety of this east coast beauty.
She is collected and carved by hand, this taonga is an excellent example of our only two east coast stones.

A vivid pink stone with highlights of white, brown, and occasionally purple, rhodonite is formed from manganese silicate and is usually found with a black ‘rind’ of pyrolusite. Its colour can range from light candyfloss pink to garnet red, and its soft, feminine hues balance the strong forms of our carvings. We gather for our pink rhodonite by hand just south of Dunedin and it is the only stone from the east coast that we work with.
Pink rhodonite is associated with the heart chakra and provides emotional healing, energetic grounding and the restoration of balance by unblocking the throat and heart chakras.
