This wonderful "baby" dragon pendant is made of natural, untreated jadeite. In reality the chilong is a hornless dragon, or mountain dragon. The color ranges from a very pale celedon to a caramel coloration. The dragon is artfully carved from the caramel portion of the stone. This is very nice, glassy, heavy jadeite. It has a wonderful weighty feel in the hand. We've installed a solid gold 14kt jump ring. Please note the necklace is not included, this price is for the pendant only. The dragon in Chinese folklore has many meanings, but it is an auspicious and powerful symbol. In recent times people refer to the chilong as a young or baby dragon but in reality, that is not the true meaning. One of the meanings is yang, or male power, but women certainly do wear this powerful symbol in all types of jewelry. Wear it to the board room and intimidate male foes. It's certainly pretty enough to be a female accessory, but with a thick heavy chain could be worn by men to boost power. Crank up your yang, ladies and gentlemen! Unusual. Great piece of jade!
