This is a unique antique nephrite jade necklace dating from the 1800s or earlier. It has recently been restrung with a new white bronze S hook clasp. The beads are very old celadon nephrite encrusted with the russet color skin of jade. The butterfly pendant of mutton fat nephrite is strung to make it seem poised for flight. The butterfly is a lardy creamy white mutton fat nephrite with russet areas and an area of calcification on the back. Beautiful fatty luster and silky feel. The necklace is 30 inches in length. The pendant measures 2.25 inches high and 2.50 inches wide. Weight is 148.1 grams. Fine condition with no chips or cracks.

I have been collecting and selling jade for many years. This is part of my collection which I am now sharing with other jade lovers. For more options, please see the Antique and Estate Jade Collection of my shop.
