19th century Maori Nephrite Jade Adze Toki Pendant.
This "Hei Toki" shows to have been drilled from both sides by the cutter. It displays a lemon finish and was very likely polished with garnet dust. The back shows that it was cut with a large saw, and you can still see the pattern left by the blade.
The nephrite itself displays a nice olive green color.
