SOLAR - red jade toki, hand carved in New Zealand

This toki, or adze, pendant is carved from New Zealand Jade. The distinctive colour is a result of heating the jade - this changes the characteristic jade green to this glorious orange / red.

Take a look at the short video and you will see the variation in colour, and the lovely drop form of this piece.

Early coal miners discovered this when using jade boulders from their tailings to build fireplaces - the heat from the fires changed the stone's colour to a coalescence of orange and red hues. You can best see these in the video.

The toki is a tribal symbol representing strength. It is designed to honour the adze which was used to build, fight, defend and played a important role in the daily survival of ancient tribes.

We deliver this pendant on a hand plaited charcoal grey adjustable cord with a burgundy binding. We will also include one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.
