"Monkey Protects 2 Peaches" Older Burmese Jadeite 3-D Pendant (JHP131)
Very 3-D vintage Burmese jadeite pendant featuring a monkey and two peaches. Monkeys are symbol of protection and caring, peach is symbol of feminine, woman. The peaches are dark green jadeite stone, and the monkey is slightly honey color on his back side. The carving is very detailed. You can tell that the jade carver studied the jade rough to use the coloring to its best advantage. The size is 42mm long, 23.5mm at the widest part and 13.5mm thick. Very nicely polished, this is a substantial piece of genuine natural older jadeite stone.
Purchased in the year 2003 during a shopping trip to China near the border of Burma (Myanmar).
