New Zealand Flower Jade Pounamu Nephrite Pikorua/Twist Pendant

USD $119.00

Because of its meaning, the Maori twist symbol is the most widely known among the pounamu greenstone designs. The twist represents the connection between the two humans, whether by companionship, romantic relationship,or kinship.

The twist symbol refers to the unbreakable link between two people, whether they are parted for brief or extended periods. It is reminiscent of these people’s life pathways and how they would always come back together. With that, the Maori twist jade necklace is a common present among partners, families, friends, and even those who have lost someone.

Flower jade or picture jade is pounamu with cream, yellow, or brown inclusions, from oxidising or weathering in the surface of the stone. Cracks or fissures in the stone can allow iron impurities to enter, and carvers can then make use of the resulting patterns. Flower jade is best known from the Marsden district near Hokitika.
