A stunning stone scape of West Coast Serpentinite.
Collected and carved by us on the South Islands' rugged shorelines.
Aqua greens blend with a navy Ash blue and yellow to create a beautiful Taonga with a unique look and texture. With layers of mineral inclusions and a rugged looks, she is such a perfect creation of Mother Nature.
This beautiful Toki is a thinner cut so not suitable for wearing during hard labour.
Sometimes porous, serpentinite can absorb oils from your skin and its colour may deepen over time - this should not be seen as a flaw but as part of the stone’s natural evolution with its wearer. ( it will darken this stone)

A rich and varied stone, serpentinite is one of threepounamustones used in traditional carving, and one of the most recognizable. A metamorphic stone formed from antigorite, lizardite and chrysotile, this wide mix of minerals produce a stone of immense complexity, and individual pieces can contain colours ranging from deep moss green to aquatic blue, with gold, orange, and brown highlights.
A healing stone, serpentinite replenishes and restores energies within the body and creates a protective field around its wearer.
