In New Zealand, Nephrite jade is known as “greenstone” or “pounamu” and it plays a very important role in Maori culture. It is considered as a “Taonga” (or treasure). The jade is only found in the South Island of New Zealand, known in the Maori language as “Te Wai Pounamu” (“The Greenstone Water”). Traditionally weapons, tools and a variety of ornaments and jewelry were made of jade. Treasured items are still passed on as valuable heirlooms and are often given as gifts to loved ones or as gifts to conclude important agreements.
In New Zealand, Greenstone was formed by great heat and pressure on the ocean bed over 2300 million years ago. This beautiful gemstone was uplifted high into the mountains 10 million years ago during the formation of the Southern Alps. Over time erosion has released greenstone boulders into the glaciers and rivers that carry them to today’s remote valleys and streams.
The Dream Stone
Jade is most prized for its special metaphysical properties. Jade is considered the ultimate “Dream Stone”. The stone is revered in ancient cultures, but it is also used today to gain access to the spiritual world, to gain insight into ritual knowledge, to encourage creativity and to understand the meaning of dreams. The stone is popular as a protective talisman, to ensure long life and peaceful death. That is why the stone is also considered a powerful healing stone. As a talisman of happiness and friendship, jade stands for wisdom gathered in tranquility, to eliminate all the negative and stimulate everyone to see themselves as they really are.

Titanium is approximately three to four times stronger than stainless steel, which means its lifespan over generations is slightly longer. It is, for the most part, denser than stainless steel. This makes it a more substantial metal alloy overall. Consequently, titanium is typically more expensive than stainless steel per price point.
Titanium is rather skin-friendly since it isn’t usually mixed with other allergenic metals, so even people who are prone to metal allergies can wear titanium without worry. This is a crucial point to remember when shopping for a showstopper.
