From the home of an elderly widow whose husband served in the Pacific wars.
The pendant shows more translucency than the beads. Both in very good pre owned antique and vintage condition.
Please view all images, particularly #1 shown placed on light box as seen above and 3, 4 show both sides.

The above are the best possible observations and descriptions.
The shade of this most valued of hard stone has gone by many names: mutton, white, jade, jadeite, nephrite, etc.
