Artist Alter of Intention : (26) Maori Pounamu Green Stone Necklace

Another gift from Judy's travels. This is a Maori Pounamu Green Stone pendant, carved from the native jade stones found only in New Zealand. Very rare, and dark dense green, usually these stones are carved in the shape of spirals (Koru) to keep the spirit of the wearer firmly attached. I understand inclusions /coloration like this one exhibits are very rare. Must be working, since my spirit is still hanging on pretty tight. :)
