Marsden Flower Rau Kumara Koru, New Zealand Greenstone
This beautiful piece has the duel meaning of both the rau kumara and the koru.
The rau kumara represents an eternal bond of friendship and love, and would make the perfect gift for a loved one.
The koru symbolises a fern frond that is unfurling, representing new life and growth, as well as strength and peace.
Marsden Flower Greenstone comes from the Marsden area of the West Coast of New Zealand. The gold-coloured variegation in the piece is called "flower" and makes this type of greenstone particularly valued and distinctive.
