$19,000

weight: 14.5 pounds The most highly valued colors of jadeite are the most intensely green, translucent varieties, though traditionally white has been considered the most valuable of the jades by the Chinese, known for their carefully crafted jade pieces. Laughing Buddha: According to Chinese tradition, Budai was an eccentric Chinese Zen (Chn) monk who lived during the Later Liang Dynasty (907923 CE) of China. He was a native of Fenghua, and his Buddhist name was Qieci (Chinese: 契此; pinyin: Qicǐ; literally "Promise this"). He was considered a man of good and loving character. Although primarily a folkloric figure, he has been incorporated into a number of Buddhist and Taoist folklore traditions.
