    This is an amazingly craved piece of antique Natural apple green jade/jadeite pendant. This measures 3" x 2.5". This was a family heirloom and I thought to share. The piercing of the jade is very desirable and the depth is really nice.

    Qilin generally have Chinese dragon-like features. Most notably their heads, eyes with thick eyelashes, manes that always flow upward and beards. The bodies are fully or partially scaled, though often shaped like an ox, deer or horse's, and always with cloven hooves. In modern times, the depictions of qilin have often fused with the Western concept of unicorns.
    These are worn for prosperity, good health, happiness and balance.

      Just a vintage looking and fairly common Fengshui piece (in East Asia at least).
