Rare Nephrite Whitish/Gray Jade Statue of an Immortal - God of Longevity - Shao Lao

This is a rare extremely well carved Nephrite jade statue of the god of longevity = Shao Lao. The carving is so well detailed that this was carved by a master. The color is a whitish gray. There is what appears to be chinese writing on his garment. This item is so extraordinary that I will let the picture describe the wonderful carving. If you need additional pictures please email me.

Condition: no chips or repairs. I see on the back of the statue what might be a slight stress line but I am not sure - mentioned to be accurate. I make no apologies for this rare statue.

I believe this is nephrite jade and not jadeite jade (based on the color white-gray) but the experts out there might know better than me.

The item stand about 9 inches with the stand. Does not separate from the stand as it is permanently attached.
