A 300 year old ornamental Maori adze-head, New Zealand. Made of Pounamu (Nephrite or Greenstone). Note the small hole drilled at the top for suspension on a fine cord worn around the neck. It was found in 1972 during archaeological excavations on the Kaikoura coast.
The Moeraki Boulders, found on Koekohe Beach near Moeraki on New Zealand’s coast. The huge, gray, spherical stones formed in sediment on the sea floor 60 million years ago and were revealed by shoreline erosion. The boulders, some of which stand alone and some in clusters, can weigh several tons and measure 10 feet across. from Green Renaissance
