I thoroughly enjoyed stopping in here. The ladies at the counter were very nice and up for a chat. There was an open workshop where you could view artists carving stones. Only thing to note is that it's not all NZ jade they sell, so check (it's usually labeled if it's NZ stone), but the ladies at the counter happily... More

We visited this wonderful shop that both sells carved greenstone (jade) and offers a free tour of the shop and workrooms. This includes a description of the various types of greenstone, with examples and a tour of the workrooms where some of the carving is done. You will be amazed at how a domestic sewing machine is used to polish... More

The one thing, the one most important thing to Shah, is customer service. Well, the store looked very inviting and certainly upscale. The town of Hokitika is renowned for its local jade, which can be collected only by the Maori and when handcrafted by them, makes for a very nice gift. So, Shah stopped in this store to pick up...

So there is the main store that is big but not very welcoming but if you go down a few street and turn left you will see a smaller store which is also Mountain Jade. That is the one to go into. The Jade pieces are presented in groups so you have the Spiral section, Fish Hook etc. The lady... More

We were en route to Greymouth from Fox Glacier. After visiting the Information Centre, we spotted Mountain Jade nearby and so we stepped in for a browse. It is rather spacious and with a variety of greenstone ornamental exhibits. There is a workshop allowing customers to see how the beautiful ornaments are made from stones. However, nobody was at work... More

Nice shop to go around if you are in the area. There are lots of ornaments and articles and nice to browse. There different colors and varieties of jade that you can see. There were some good pieces we saw but nothing great or out of the ordinary.

The free guided tour was most interesting. It included some background information about the various sources and types of jade and you are able to see people working the jade from the raw material to the finished article. The shop has a wide range of goods. There is a café attached.
