Koru - The Māori word for bright or loop. It refers to the new shoots of the fern frond.
The circular movement to the inner core refers to "going back to the beginnings".
The unfurling frond itself is symbolic of new life, new beginnings, hope, personal growth, purity nurturing, a new phase in life, the spirit of rejuvenation and peace.
Genuine West Coast Greenstone – Kawakawa is the most common variety of Pounamu. it comes in many shades - from strong, rich green to dark green and often has small dark flecks, which add to its character.
Named after the leaf of the Kawakawa. It is the main type used for gem purposes.
