Another hand carved piece of jade called old jade.According to Wikipedia the term "Ancient Old Jade" is a type of jade described and defined by the Chinese as a semi-translucent precious stone that is harder than other stones, with a shiny surface, feeling both smooth and heavy, and having a distinct sound when knocked on. So this stone is a replica of famous Qing Dynasty carvings (1644-1911) and represents a phoenix and a butterfly...

One of my favorite stones is this hair quartz rutile, in my language it is called "samovilska kosa" which means fairy hair. So the necklace story is about a fairy whose hair was trapped in a morning dew and falling out from the leafs as the fairy was washing her face and combing her hair....Originally a planed to put some verdigris on the leafs but i am afraid that it would make it difficult to match with other accessory to the potential customer....or not?
