Please note - there is a large percentage of imported chinese stock on our NZ marketplace (up to 80% of all jade you will see on shelves).  This stock is mass produced in China often using child labour.  Please be aware of this when purchasing products throughout NZ and ask where the product comes from.  If they cannot tell you the origin it is more than likely imported product.  Our philosophy is that if the stone is not from NZ we do not work it, and we also do not mass produce any items, as we believe this is not in keeping with the spirit of the stone and NZ.    All of our products come with a Certificate of Authenticity.  Support NZ artists and buy NZ Made.
