Eight Grade A icy jade cabochons with excellent lustre and translucency, designed as a ring. Though small, these cabochons belong to top quality icy jade, also known as glassy variety due to the high translucency and clarity. The jadeite cabochons look like eight little glowing light bulbs with the strong natural fluorescence radiating within the jade. The quality of these cabochons is very good with very fine jade grains.
Certification for this jadeite ring by Nan Yang Gemological Institute (http://www.ngi.com.sg/), a reputable and independent Singapore gem testing lab, is available upon request.
Jadeite is highly demanded and is exclusively sourced from Myanmar, formerly Burma, hence it is widely known as “Burmese Jade”. It is rich in heritage and widely believed to have spiritual meanings in the Chinese culture. Jade is believed to protect the person who wears it. A horse saddle (an 鞍) is a symbol for “peace” (an 安) because the pronunciation of the two words is the same.
