Large Marsden Flower Roimata, New Zealand Greenstone
This gorgeous large roimata has been carved from a beautiful dark piece of Marsden flower greenstone with pale green at the end and other natural inclusions. Its a simple and clean design with traditional binding that really allows you to appreciate the natural patterns in stone. Roimata represent strength and independence.
Marsden Flower Greenstone comes from the Marsden area of the West Coast of New Zealand. The gold and white coloured variegation in the piece is called "flower" and makes this type of greenstone particularly valued and distinctive.
This pendant was hand carved on the west coast of the South Island, New Zealand, by Jeremy.
