This toki has beautiful translucency. The way the light shines through this when held up to the sun or a light source reveals the inner aspects of the stone. I love to be able to see into Pounamu.
Every surface of this toki is curved. Curves are what makes a pendant feel good in the hands. It also has a strong and defined ‘cutting edge’ similar to a functional toki.
A toki is a symbol of power, mana, and authority. It is often given to someone with the intention of bolstering these qualities, as we always can do with extra support. It is also a symbol of a person that works with their hands, a craftsman or artist. Many people wear the toki as a sign of their purpose in life or work.
Kahurangi is a variety of pounamu that is bright apple green and has very little inclusions or other colourings in it.
