Large Substantial "Buddha Blessing" Burmese Jadeite Grade A Pendant (JHP-157)
A small carving that makes a large and substantial Burmese jadeite pendant. Size is 50 mm long, 45 mm widest width and 12 mm thick (thickness adds to strength). Very well carved. Blessed Buddha has a string of beads around His neck with a heart in the center. He is sitting in Meditation pose on a lotus leaf. The reverse side is smooth and polished. The jadeite stone is genuine and natural grade A, tested by refraction. The color shows the natural-ness with all the varied shades of green throughout. The quality of the jadeite stone and excellent carving will help this piece of jadeite increase in value, and be strong enough to wear and enjoy it all the time.
Purchased during Jade Heaven shopping trip in China near the Burma border directly from the jade carvers in 2003,
