Thank you for the information below. We are all good, over here in Whenuapai. My daughter, who just turned 10, is looking forward to having her first greenstone for her recent birthday. We saw your website and carvings and were very impressed. Thank you for helping us bless our daughter in this way. Hope all is well.
Cheers, Russell D B – Whenuapai

Hey, just thought I’d let you know, my nephew was given his mania today and loves it. Now I have a niece who wants one 😂 I suspect we will be in the market for a whale tail one very soon. There are two listed I like. She’s younger so the smaller one listed may be ideal. I’m gonna have to start hinting pretty hard to my sister I’d like one too 😂
