Jadeite in Chinese is called "Fei Cui". Originally, Fei is refer to color of a red bird and Cui is green color bird. In real world, true red color jadeite is rare. What people call red jadeite is mostly brown or light brown. To have untreated natural jadeite with red and green color together in one piece is more rare.

Dragon and Phoenix together is called "Long Feng Cheng Xiang", which is a blessing for harmony between man and woman. A Ruyi ("As You Wish") is carved in the center of the piece. Another side shows a "Fu" ("Fortune") character, a gourd and a Bat carved below Fu, which is called "Fu Lu" in Chinese, indicates Luck and Fortune. Excellent condition.
