Chinese Jade (Nephrite) Scraping Tool. Ca. 2000 BC

2 5/8 x 1 ¾ x 3/16 ins. (6.5 x 4.5 x 0.5 cms) In early cultures jade was the most highly prized stone used for tools due to its extreme hardness and resistance to wear. The trade-off was that these qualities made it very difficult and intractable to work and the time taken to fashion it into a tool made it a possession of some prestige and value.
