New Zealand’s most sacred stone: Pounamu greenstone (jade)


Pounamu Greenstone, also known as New Zealand jade, is found in the foothills of the Southern Alps behind Hokitika in the West Coast region.

One of these pounamu fields is the Arahura. The Arahura River is the home of pounamu and some of the most beautiful stones man can find.
