Kauri gum or amber is the fossilised sap of the giant native Kauri tree.  Kauri amber is very lightweight so it’s easy to wear even big pieces.
It is however not as hard as jade or bone so is not suitable to wear when playing contact sports or swimming etc.

Toki/Adze – greenstone/pounamu toki have a spiritual meaning associated with strength, control, determination and focus.
Before toki became ornamental they were an everyday tool (adze) used in cutting and digging. They were also lashed into expertly carved wooden shafts and wielded by powerful Maori chiefs during religious ceremonies.
