"Always gift, never keep for ones self." Bought a lot of greenstone but gifted them all to loved ones. Only kept the ones from auntie Kelly and the toki from Koro.

Koru - a symbol of Maori art mimicking the fiddlehead of new ferns. It symbolizes new life, growth, development, and peace. The circular shape of the koru helps to convey the idea of perpetual movement while the inner coil suggests a return to the point of origin. ( i have a necklace with this symbol on it.)
