Marsden Flower Rau Kumara Koru, New Zealand Greenstone
This gorgeous and unique rau kumara koru has been carved from a stunning dark piece of Marsden flower greenstone with pale green towards the end. This piece is quite special in that it has a dual meaning. The rau kumara represents an eternal bond of friendship, love, and loyalty, while the koru represents new life and growth as an unfurling fern frond.
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.
