"Lucky Monkey Peach" with "Hong" Red Burmese Jadeite Pendant (JHP161)
Burmese jadeite monkey and peach pendant, with a touch of "hong" red for extra good luck. Size is 49mm by 20mm and 9mm thick, like a jade carving you can wear. Monkey is symbol of "cleverness", peach is symbol of immortality, long and happy life. Peach is symbol of yin and woman, and longevity. "Hong" red is good luck in China, gifts of money are often given in red envelopes. The pendant is carved very well on both sides and polished beautifully.
This genuine and natural Burmese jadeite is "old mine" and carved in the tradtional way of the jade carver studying the jade to determine its best use, and then doing the carving on an "auspicious" day. Purchased directly from the jade carver during our shopping trip in China near the Burma border in 2003. Tested by refraction, genuine natural Burmese jadeite.
