Type-A Jadeite Dragon Pendant
We recently acquired numerous Type A (Natural - no dyes, no infusions) Jadeite Pendants from a long-time collector. This is one of those pieces.
This nearly transparent and finely carved pendant features a Full Bodied Dragon. The Dragon is in the Chinese Zodiac. It is known as the mightiest of creatures, master of rain and water and usually good-natured. On the reverse is the carved Chinese symbol for Dragon. This pendant has been finely executed in Type-A Jadeite with a Moss-in-Snow coloration. It measures 28mm x 20mm x 5mm (not measuring bail) with a weight of 12.3 grams.
This pendant is affixed with an 8mm fine 14K gold bail and will be delivered as shown with box suitable for storage or presentation.
NOTE: To provide the best assay of each piece of Jadeite we take numerous pictures. The first two pictures, front and back on white background and labeled, represent the truest color of the Jadeite. The remaining photos, on black background, are taken with various degrees of additional contrast so that the detail of the carving becomes clearer and provides for a more thorough examination. They are not intended, nor do they, convey accurate coloration.
