Greenstone is the English name for Pounamu, New Zealand's nephrite jade. It comes in a wide range of greens - from very pale milky tones through to rich deep greens. In pre-European times it was highly prized for tools and weapons, and in modern times it is still prized but used for far more peaceful pieces - beautiful jewelry that is reputed to keep the wearer safe over water when travelling.
