It’s pounamu…has come from olderog creek in the arahura. Worth 50$ or thereabouts. Nice find
Gosh…Pounamu/Greenstone…I would never have thought that. I was leaning towards obsidian.
I’m always open to buying any greenstone people find as I do a little carving…just pm me for a chat
It’s a bad pictures but it is covered in hexagons inside and on the back
It’s a great find. Well done…
pounamu and worth more than 50 id say.
Could be Jadite which is worth more than greenstone (because its rarer). Either way, get more than $50 for it!
could be bowenite, still part of the pounamu family
as a licensed pounamu artisan of ngai tahu I can confirm it is nephrite…either Arahura or casade river origin based on the high chromium . definately not jadite or bowneite.
As for value, $50 would be in the realm of fair. You could get $100 potentially.
