Antique mottled opaque hard-stone bracelet that is well carved with a snakelike dragon and phoenix design. The design is subtle and the carving is well rounded and deep on this oh so soft feeling stone. The stone mesmerizes the eye with a matrix of tiny veins in russet, green, and brown.

An opaque hard-stone carved in a toroid thick section form. It is carved with a delicate raised relief of one snake-like dragon separating what may be two phoenixes with long tails. The stone is mottled in shades of russet, light brown and olive green with prominent russet stained fissure lines.

Although most of the stone is opaque, there are a few areas where the stone is somewhat translucent. The stone has a nice soft feel and has a soft hand polished look. It doesn’t have that shiny machine polish. The bracelet has a nice weight to it.

Please note that we also have listed a nearly matching bracelet. Item ID: J-1547
