Pounamu is the stone of our nation! New Zealanders take pride in the beautiful green stone, known as jade, or in Maōri, Pounamu.
It is traditional to buy Pounamu for a loved one as a 'taonga', or, a sacred gift. It is a lovely keepsake from Aotearoa - so if you're a traveller, or miss your ex-pat friend, this is a really lovely gift idea.
Please note, no two pounamu or knotting is the same, so it won't look like the picture, but will be equally as lovely.
