Marsden Flower Rau Kumara Koru, New Zealand Pounamu (Greenstone)
This lovely Marsden flower piece has two meanings. The twist, or rau kumara, represents friendship, love and loyalty. The koru, which mimics an unfurling fern frond, stands for new life and growth.
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.
