Beautiful green jade from New Zealand. It is classified as nephrite jade but feels very jadeite to me. This Green Jade Pendant in Greenstone is in the Double Infinity shape. This must have been very tricky to carve. You would hang it using a thin string through the hole. Or take the jade pendant to a jeweller to make a jump ring in silver of gold.
The meanings of the shapes as given by one of our Maori customers:
- Spiral – “Koru” meaning “life”
- Infinity – “Mo Ake” meaning “the infinite; forever; eternal”
- Double Infinity – “Wha Nau Mo Ake” meaning “forever family”
