The listing is for an Antique 9K Gold Greenstone Pounamu Kia Ora Brooch. The brooch is a carved pounamu or greenstone made from jade in the shape of a cornucopia-like form finished with beautiful gold ornate end caps. The larger cap has ornate scroll and gold ball details and the cap on the point has a single gold ball accent. The brooch features the Māori greeting of KIA ORA in pierced gold lettering at the center of the pounamu with flowers and leaf accents.
