    This piece of jade was carved with a greek key design. The piece is just under 4 inches long and 1.25 inches wide and 1.5 inches high. I don't know a whole lot about jade, but this appears to be very good quality by color, etc.

      this piece has ended up being pretty interesting. it's extremely high quality jade, but the carving appears to be so crude. it just seems too incongruous. i don't think it's crude though. i think it's unfinished.
