    I found this little guy a while back. I believe he is made from jade. Does anyone have any knowledge as to age or any other info?

      I'm pretty sure that's soapstone, not jade.

      Don't quote me, though...lol!

      I'll try to see if I can find out anything. It's actually a lot darker than pic shows.
    4. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 4 years ago
      Can you adjust the color in your pc? That would make a difference.
    5. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 4 years ago
      Are there no marks anywhere?
    6. Mrstyndall Mrstyndall, 4 years ago
      There are no marks on bottom. You are probably right about it being soapstone-I did a scratch test on bottom and it did leave a scratch.

      Oh, those photos are much better!! Now it looks like Jade.

      Soapstone can fool people, especially when the carving is really well done.

      I inquired with a soapstone carver as to how to repair some faint scratches on a soapstone carving I have. Thinking I could do it myself, he kinda chuckled at my question and replied that 'there are 7 different techniques that could be used to do the repair work' and that he'd 'have to have a look'. Also apparently, soapstone carving can be hard on the health if certain precautions aren't adhered to depending on the stone. I really like your horse.
