A pale celadon nephrite jade pi disk pendant dating from about 1900. This is a variation on the pi form with a center carved in the rice pattern and the outer rim in the Chinese meander (or Greek key) pattern which symbolizes a meandering river in Chinese mythology. It measures 2.25 inches in diameter. Please note that the true color may appear different on your screen. Nice even color and good polish. The pi disk is an ancient Chinese form used as an astronomical instrument for gazing at the stars and communicating with the heavens. Originally this honor was only accorded to the Emperor. FREE neck cord on request.
