Lovely store with great jade products. They had things at all price ranges so even if you’re on a budget, you could probably find something you liked. We got a little jade kiwi bird and it’s very adorable.

Wide range of New Zealand jade (greenstone) styles and prices. Staff are helpful and very knowledgable about jade and the manufacturing of their various items. We found two items we have been seeking for several years. Well worth a visit.
