Here we have an ancient late Shang Dynasty to early Western Zhou Dynasty carved chinese jade amulet of a mythological beast. The surface of the jade shows alteration from burial. The now opaque jade amulet has stunning variegated tones of yellow through to gray. These colors naturally occurring over millennia of burial. The coloration is beautiful indeed. It weighs approximately 81.7 grams. This archaic jade Chinese artifact measures approximately 2 3/8" long from the head to the tail of the animal by 1 1/2" wide by 15/16 tall (61mm x 38mm by 24mm). The photos form part of the description. Like all colored stones there is a color variation that occurs in different lighting conditions both inside but also outside, even the time of day can make the color of a stone appear a little different.

We do our best to show colors as we see them. Color perception is highly individual and some people can perceive more colors than others, also colors can appear somewhat different on different screens and devices due to variations in screen hardware and device display settings.
