Regular price $1,078.00 Sale

This is an absolutely stunning manaia, carved from a piece of Marsden flower greenstone that transitions from a deep dark green to pale green with golden specks. The manaia is a powerful symbol which represents a guardian of nature and a talisman against evil for the wearer.

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.
