NELSON CHATOYANT - a band of bright lustre, caused by reflection from inclusions and the layering in the stone.
The stone Raegan has used for this Toki is exquisite - a gorgeous pale, striated blue/green diopside from the Nelson region in New Zealand's South Island. Wonderful stone and Raegan has utilised it beautifully for this piece.
NELSON CHATOYANT is a smaller sized, chunky Toki, hand carved and polished to a low sheen, a finish that really promotes the jade's colours and the chatoyant nature of this stone.
The toki, or adze, is a symbol of strength. The adze was a key survival tool, so the owner of a good one was believed to be strong and powerful ....and this is a good one!
Traditionally, the toki is worn to provide strength and courage to assist through life's challenges.
We include our 'Kia Ora' card explaining the meaning behind the Toki design.
