Beautifully coloured Chrysoprase Toki. Carved by Allan Moreton.
Traditionally Toki was used by Maori to cut and work timber for the meeting houses and carvings. Because of the determination, control and strength required to skilfully use the Toki it became a symbol of ability, power and authority. Ceremonial Toki were traditionally worn by Maori elders and Chiefs to signify leadership qualities. May this Toki bring the wearer strength, courage and inspiration on their journey in life.
Metaphysically Chrysoprase is thought to be a stone of compassion and forgiveness. Bringing a sense of peace and security within oneself.
