"Kiss of Blood Red" Burmese Jadeite Old Mine Bangle Bracelet 56.6mm (JHBB3289)
A "Kiss of Blood Red" on this pale white with green hues Burmese jadeite bangle bracelet, size 56.5mm inside diameter, 14mm wide. The color of this jade bangle is so precious, "yin" white and soft green with a touch of "yang" red. This color is called "blood red", it is more of an orange-ish shade as you can see in the photos. The photos are taken in natural outdoor lighting at different angles to help show the color as it is. Icy cold and silky smooth polish. There is what seems to be a line between the soft green and lavender hues that is called a "clarification" line, formed while the jade stone was being formed over centuries. It is not a crack or damage. Clarification lines often add color, and take some of the pressure off the roundness of the bangle shape to help it be stronger.
Purchased during our shopping trip to China in 2003 near the Burma border, directly from the jade carver. Tested by refraction, genuine Burmese jadeite.
