Beautifully coloured New Zealand Rhodonite Toki. Carved by Dean Taylor.
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.
Rhodonite metaphysically is thought to be a stone of love and unity. Balances the emotional aspect of oneself and aids in finding direction. Dissolves self-destructive patterns and anger bringing about deep sense of peace.
