This piece of jade can double as a paperweight. It serves best as a pectoral on a long chain as it is very heavy, The color is really rich and deep with a very high shine. The stone is carved on both sides and set in heavy sterling silver--a good solid mounting, though not the prettiest. It measures 3 by 1 & 1/2 by 1/2 inches--a whopper! It has a good deal of translucence but parts are opaque. Just great God-given color!
