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.

Place was tourist trap. Very expensive sales persons were pushy.If you didn't show interest in huge high dollar pieces no interest. Lots of people on tour purchased cheap jewelry at expensive costs. Not worth the stop. Sandwiches were ok..
