Description

A NZ Kauri Gum necklace

This NZ Kauri Gum necklace, will literally keep nature close to your heart! 

‘Gold fever’ struck northern New Zealand in the late 1800s, and peaked at the turn of this century. What they were seeking was not metallic gold, but Kauri Gum (NZ Amber). A rich, golden, solidified resin which polishes up like a precious stone and is one of this country’s most beautiful natural products.

Also known as NZ Amber, Kauri Gum is the fossilised resin or sap of the Kauri Tree (Agathis australis). Every piece is distinctive, varies in colour and is very rare. It is said to give a very peaceful yet powerful energy to the wearer.

With a Maori inspired distinctive design, delightful detail and wrapped in sustainable Sterling Silver, you won’t want to miss this opportunity. This rare clover honey coloured kauri gum necklace has already been lovingly crafted and is ready to ship! 

Kauri Gum should really have another name… Gum, implies a sticky, lumpy mess! When actually, Kauri Gum looks much more like solidified liquid gold!

What it does signify is enchanting landscapes and the hopes and dreams of generations, as well as encompassing the beautiful and rare…
