The Company Stone

Company Stone

My family treasure is a piece of greenstone.

My grandad’s friend picked it up from the beach at Kerikeri. He went home and he heard that my grandad was dying. So he went to where my grandad was dying and gave this stone to him to keep him company.

My grandad gave the stone to my dad. Soon after that my grandad died and my dad was really sad. Then he held the stone and passed it down to me.

Now we keep it in my mum’s treasure box that her dad gave to her.
