A fine quality Hetian nephrite jade disk pendant carved onboth sides. The color is white with gray areas. Extremely fine carving which does not show up well in the photos. The pi disk is an ancient Chinese symbol dating back thousands of years. It is thought that it may have been derived from an astronomical tool for studying the stars. The disk is 2.5 inches in diameter and .50 inch thick. It weighs a substantial 74.3 grams and is hung from a 22 inch long sage green silk cord. It dates from the Qing Dynasty 18th/19th century. Although this jade disk pendant is hundreds of years old, it has the look of amazingly contemporary jewelry.
