New Hebrides Jade

New Hebrides Jade.

In the Colonial Museum there is also a small yellowish-green adze, possibly of jade, from the New Hebrides, and a very dark stone adze, similar in shape, from the same country, Besides these, however, there is from the same islands a pale greenstone axe with five transverse seams of black. This is tinlike New Zealand stone; it is more like some I have seen from China. Its shape is characteristic of the New Hebrides, not of New Zealand. It is manifestly a jade of a different character from that found in New Zealand.
