VINTAGE Chinese JADEITE Flowers Carved Pendant Gem 58.47 cts CB271

Quantity: 1 available
Product Description
Exquisite vintage carved jade pendant made of JADEITE as opposed to nephrite.

Jadeite and Nephrite are completely different minerals and together they make up the " jade family". Jadeite and Jade are used interchangeably by many people who are not aware that there are actually two different kinds of Jade.

Jadeite is MUCH rarer and more valuable than nephrite.

This carved pendant weighs 58.47 carats and has detailed carvings on both front and back - it has a beautiful polish as well! It measures approximately 37mm x 20mm x 8.5mm.

The motif on the front is beautifully carved high relief fruit with flowers - the other side has carved leaves on it. You can see the two sides in my photographs.

This gorgeous piece of jadeite had a number of beautiful soft colors as you can see in the photographs and there is a hole up at the top for hanging purposes.
There is the typical spinach green color, a golden amber brown, and the most revered very pale violet purple!

** PLEASE NOTE: Burma ( Myanmar ) has perhaps the worst human rights record of any country. Consequently, the US government has recently enacted a ban on imports of rubies and jade from this country as of the fall of 2008 making such material even more scarce and desirable!
Material already inside the US can be freely sold but new imports are banned.

We 100% guarantee this carved pendant to be natural untreated Burmese jadeite from the late 1970's if not earlier that we imported into the US in the very late 1970's ***

Shipping charges within the U.S. INCLUDES insurance.

I sold many such magnificent vintage carved jadeite pendants through the Smithsonian Institution's museum shop and mail order catalog during the 1980's and they were also featured in trunk shows at Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue during this same time period.

You'll never see beads like this nowadays at your neighborhood "gem show"!
