A nicely carved Chinese nephrite pendant in a "Pixiu" shape. The nephrite is of very nice quality. There are some russet and dark intrusions mainly on one side of the pendant, this hints that the original material could be part of a jade pebble. We date the pendant to be early 20th century. It is in good condition with natural veins. Dimensions: 2-1/2"X2"X1/2". Please log in this link to see the definitions of "Pixiu" from Wikipedia:
