I believe that in Chinese mythology there was danger from tigers or dragons, and one of the gods sent two fighters to save the people. After their heroic battle, they became jade children, thought of as "lucky children" or "Kids of Fortune." Have not looked it up again, but probably I am reasonably close to the tale.

Country of Origin: China.

Medium: Hetian Nephrite Jade. (Chinese Hetian Nephrite Jade is a nephrite jade and was regarded as the only true jade in ancient China until Burmese jadeite became popular in late Qing Dynasty. The hardness of the Hetian jade is between 6 to 6.5. The density is between 2.96 to 3.17. Normally, the Hetian jade is silky, exquisite, moist, and bright. Hetian nephrite jade is called 'China stone' by Gem and Jewelry Trading Association of China. The nephrite jade is a naturally occurring and coherent aggregate of several minerals. The qualified nephrite jade is generally recovered from alluvial pebbles and boulder, or cut off from the rocks in which it originally formed. The process of producing a Hetian nephrite jade art craft is complicated, including cutting, grinding, and polishing by several experienced artists. For Chinese, Hetian jade is very collectible and has the potential to increase in value.

Size: 4 3/4" by 1 3/4" by 1 1/4".

Condition: Very Good.
