This Aotea Stone Toki is carved from the beautiful Aotea stone, a rarity found only in one area of South Westland, NZ. Also known as 'Hine', this stone is a blend of Kyanite (blue), Fuchsite (green) and Quartz (white) and can often have a glittery appearance.
In the ancient Māori world, the Toki or adze was a vital tool in everyday life. Toki have come to represent the strength and skill of an individual, and the acquisition of knowledge and mana (prestige).
