This extraordinarily rare Olmec Jade dagger or possible bloodletter was found together with the below quartz dagger, This piece is 4 1/2" long. The little Olmec man on the top is only 1 1/4". You can imagine the amount of work that went into creating and carving this miniature little man using only abrasion. Sculptures such as these are every much of a marvel as the great Olmec heads and the intricate Mayan temple carvings. This is truly a masterpiece in miniature. This artifact is of the finest workmanship and the highest quality jade. It has traces of powdered red cinnabar adhering to the surface. Comes with a Bill Breckinridge optically stimulated luminance IR raman laser spectrograph COA. Please view my youtube video of this item at http://youtu.be/_FifgG_J9WY. Due to a recent diagnosed major health problem, I have dropped the price of this piece and all my items by at least 50% to at or below the price I paid many years ago. Now is the time to pick up a great deal. My loss is your gain. This piece was $10,000.
