Kauri Gum HC76

Large piece of kauri gum unpolished with rough uneven surface.

Kauri gum formed from resin in the bark. The gum is generally found in the upper part of the North Island. Gum was used by Maori for chewing, starting fires and moko. By the 1890s twenty thousand people were involved in the gum industry. Gum digging was extremely hard work.
