This is the finest miniature Olmec jade maskette that I have ever seen. It measures only 1 1/2" long. It is made from one of the most beautiful pieces of jade that I have seen. It is so translucent that it is almost transparent. It dates to 1200-600BC. It has a modern loop on the top and can be worn every day. It comes with a forensic laboratory report from Orenda Labs.

This is a carved portrait of Christ in gem quality emerald from Columbia. It has been specific gravity tested. It originated from the Chivor mining area in Columbia which produced higher grade specimens than the Muzo or Coscuez areas. It dates to around the middle 1600's and shows no evidence of modern tool marks. It is 233.24 carats. It is 1 1/2" tall, 1/1/4" wide and 1" deep. The patina is beautiful. It is a fabulous hand or pocket piece. I don't know of another Christ carving in emerald...
