    Hello Everyone
    I have been buying a few Jadiete Jade carvings.
    This particular carving is very nice and a bit unusual
    I think it's called Pixiu,a mystical creature, in beautiful condition.
    My question is was this type carving have any fertility properties,
    The sex of this carving is male (male genitalia).
    Haven't seen this type of carving at all.
    Any clarification is appreciated.

      I think it's called shou stone or made to look like shou stone.

      Hi ho2cultcha
      Just looked up shousan stone and I can't tell the difference between shosan and jade.
      However I do have a piece that is shousan stone.
      I will post that shortly.
