A glorious pale, mottled-green Koru pendant. This piece is a stunner - it has a lot of variation in the stone in both colour and in the type and size of the visible inclusions. Backlit, this piece reveals the wonderful colours - greens, black and a hint of lilac.
The jade is from New Zealand and is called Kokopu - so named because it resembles a little native fish we have in streams and rivers.
The finish is a buffed sheen to allow the colours to come to the fore.
The koru is worn as a symbol of re-birth, growth and development. It represents the unfurling fronds of the fern, and is typically carved with delicate spirals and decorative swirls - this is a superb example.
This is a beautiful pendant if you are looking for a standout piece of handmade jewellery. A wooden box carved from Kauri is included and adds to the fine craftsmanship of this piece.
Delivered to you on a Kalahari adjustable cord and shipped with DHL Express Courier. We will also include one of our 'Kia ora' cards which explains the meaning behind the Koru design.
