A beautiful, well carved Gautama Shakyamuni Buddha in pointing to earth pose, with lotus. This is natural nephrite, very finely carved, weighing 147 grams (5 ounces) and measuring over three inches tall (just the figure, taller on the stand). The Buddha is very consistent in color. We tried our best to capture the average color, but the color will change in various lighting conditions. One of the most unusual jade Buddhas we've come across. Understand that while this Buddha is relatively small, the quality of the jade and the carving execution is very high compared to almost any that you will find. The founder of Buddhism can be ensconced in your home, rendering it full of peace and wisdom!
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.
