Jade Carving


The West Coast is famous for its jade/greenstone which you can find throughout the region, and you can keep only the stones you find on the beach (river finds are off limits). If you haven't found any of your own then head to the many shops in the region that sell them carved into beautiful pendants etc. Hokitika probably has the most shops selling jade and you can often view the carvers in action too. You can carve your own pendant too, check out Bonz'n Stonz Carving Studio and Gallery in Hokitika or Te Koha Gallery in Franz Josef Glacier.
