A carved Hetian nephrite jade sword guard can be worn as a pendant if desired. (Gray silk cord included on request.) Measures 3 inches long, 1 inch wide and weighs 35.5 grams. Color is pale celadon. This is likely an archaistic piece made to honor an earlier time. Fine condition with no chips or cracks. Vein marks shown on reverse side are not cracks.
I have been collecting and selling jade for many years. This is part of my collection which was verbally authenticated at the San Francisco Asian Art Museum in 1974. For more options, please see the jade section of my shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/elegantartifacts
