Simple Marsden Flower Toki, New Zealand Greenstone
A gorgeous dark piece of Marsden flower greenstone with a pale golden top. This is a very simple version of the traditional toki, a long and narrow piece with a glossy finish. Toki were traditionally worn by chiefs and warriors as symbols of power, 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"
