This Olmec maskette is made from chloromelanite jadeite and dates to 1200-600BC. It measures 2 1/2" long, 2" wide and 1" deep. Half is imperial green jade and half is imperial blue jade. It was authenticated by Dr. Frank Preusser who has more than 35 years of experience in the scientific examination of works of art and historical and archaeological artifacts. He was the chief scientist at the Doerner Institute in Munich and the Director of the J. Paul Getty Museum. He has consulted for UNESCO, the World Bank, the World Monuments Fund, and others. It was also authenticated by Stoetzerinc.com who is one of the foremost respected international authenticators. It comes with his report. It was also authenticated by Orenda Forensic Labs and comes with their 10 page report. It has a sense of majesty and power about it. It is an unparalleled hand piece. It is impossible to over exaggerate the beauty and quality of this truly extraordinary maskette. It is perfect in every way. The translucence is beyond compare.
