A stunning Ming dynasty archaistic hand carved nephrite jade pendant bead with grain pattern. The whole pendant has a stunning high polish with russet coloration in places and some suffusion. It is hand carved so is slightly asymmetrical in shape as the photos clearly show. It measures approximately 1 7/8" tall by 1 1/8" wide at one end and is 15/16" wide at the other end (48mm x 28mm, 23mm). Across the whole gently curved slightly concave cylinder is a symmetrically carved grain pattern paying homage to ancient Chinese jade from the Warring States. This ancient jade pendant is in lovely condition commensurate with it's age and authenticity. It is over 500 years old and is not a new replica made with electrical tools in an imitation gemstone.Gemological testing including density (specific gravity) confirm nephrite jade.
