This beautiful toki has been carved from a dark piece of Marsden flower greenstone with pale inclusions. A lovely simple design with traditional binding. Toki were traditionally worn by chiefs and warriors, as symbols of strength, wisdom, and authority.
Marsden Flower Greenstone comes from the Marsden area of the West Coast and is an especially distinctive type of greenstone because of its beautiful white and gold variegation, known as "flower."
This pendant was hand carved on the west coast of the South Island, New Zealand, by Jeremy.
