A large agate ring dating probably from the Warring States period. Rings of this type were fastened upon clothing as decoration. Dim.: diameter 76mm, thick 9mm, wide 11mm. There are some impurities in the stone (cavities) and a nice orange area. The shape is pointed towards the outside with slightly flattened edges. On the inside, which is less polished, the shape goes around in 6 cut steps. The sizes -as indicated- aren't exact and differ slightly from spot to spot. This and visible irregularities in the cutting are good proof of it's authenticity.
