Marsden Flower Breast Plate, New Zealand Greenstone
This beautiful translucent Marsden flower greenstone has been carved into a simple contemporary plate design. A range of different shades of green swirls together with natural brown inclusions and black flecks.
Marsden Flower Greenstone comes from the Marsden area of the West Coast of New Zealand. The gold-coloured variegation in the piece is called "flower" and makes this type of greenstone particularly valued and distinctive.
