Jade Carving

Carving jade has been known to have occurred in China as far back as the new stone age. Because of it's hardness, it was used to make weapons, tool, blades, and other utensils.

The Chinese and Japanese used jade carvings for religious and mystic purposes. Round disks and tubes have been excavated from tombs dating back thousands of years, suggesting that jade was used in burial ceremonies.

Before Columbus came to America, Native Americans valued jade higher than any other mineral and used it extensively for trade and religious purposes.

As a gemstone, jade is very popular around the world, not only because of it's hardness, but mainly because it is very precious and beautiful when carved and polished.

The Chinese have always had a high degree of interest in jade carving that is still practiced today. Their carvings are intricate and well designed, displaying a high degree of workmanship.

Some of their most prized works are carvings of Buddha figurines, miniature animals, plants, flowers, jade necklaces, pendants, and other ornamental objects.

Even today, jade plays an important part in Chinese culture. In wedding ceremonies, it symbolizes love and happiness.

India has a long history of jade cutting and design that dates back for centuries. Indian craftsmanship can be seen in vases, decanters, and other objects, many of them embellished with rare and precious jewels such as rubies, garnets, and emeralds.

Polished jade is smooth to the touch and beautiful to look at, especially the carvings that have milky white and green blending's.
