A nice, well carved Dhyana Mudra Buddha in meditating pose, with fitted stand. This is natural nephrite, very nicely carved, weighing 32.06 grams (1.13 ounces) and measuring just about 2 1/4 inches tall (just the Buddha, over 3 inches tall on the stand). The Buddha is very consistent in color, with a few dark inclusions. We tried our best to capture the average color, but the color will change in various lighting conditions as you can see from the pictures. One of the more unusual jade Buddhas we've come across; we have a few other Buddhas carved in green nephrite as well. Understand that while this Buddha is small, the quality of the jade and the carving execution is very high compared to most that you will find anywhere. Bring some serenity and wisdom to your home or office!
Note: This is natural jade, untreated nephrite (only jadeite and nephrite can legally be called jade). Nephrite is actually more durable than jadeite, and able to withstand more pressure before breakage. White and green nephrite are among the most revered jade colors.
