    Present for Sister Back Home in Canada

    Hey all,

    My sister's birthday is coming up so I thought I'd send her something distinctly 'kiwi' since I won't be able to go home to Canada to celebrate it with her. She's an artistic person and I'd like to stick to something that'd fit in a smallish box 6"x6" or so. My initial idea was to pick up a greenstone Hei Matau or an ornamental comb for her. Any thoughts?

    Regards,

    - Jay C.

    She loves the free fresh wind in her hair; Life without care. She's broke but it's oke; that's why the lady is a tramp.

    Stick with the Greenstone, it lasts a lifetime and has very strong Mana.

    Agreed. If you do buy some here tho you will just be sending it home again.
    NZ is now flooded with BC stone and some pass it off a genuine.
    There is a wee place in Haast that sells the genuine article if you want it guaranteed NZ ponamu.

    I am just dying to say something but I feel it would pale against your new signature. Awesome
