THE MILKY WAY 

A Kerry Thompson toki carved from New Zealand Inanga jade.

This is a marvellous piece of stone - nature's kaleidoscope! Hold this piece with the light playing across its face, move it back and forth and the stone changes, like a kaleidoscope. This effect is caused by the stone's chatoyance - lustre caused by the reflection of light off mineral inclusions in the stone.

THE MILKY WAY is a medium-sized Toki hand carved and polished. It is a solid piece with a lovely handle. You will know that you have a piece of New Zealand pounamu on when you slip this over your head! A toki to wear all day, every day. Carved with Kerry's exceptional attention to detail, this is a faultless carving.

Take a quick look at the very brief video we have made of this pendant slowly rotating. This reveals size shape and the stone beautifully.

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 provide this beautiful piece on a fixed length cord with Jade Toggle. If you would like a different coloured or adjustable cord, please let us know in the comments section at checkout.

We include our 'Kia Ora' card explaining the meaning behind the Toki design.
