These hard-stone axes of oval section have been found in Yangshao neolithic sites in Shanxi province, dating to the late 5th-early 4th millennium BCE. This is a particular fine example, made from a large oblong pebble of a very hard jadelike stone. The sides and butt are left rough, and the tip is polished to a slightly curved profile on both sides. It fits comfortably into the hand. Dimensions: length: 10 cm; width: 4.3 cm. Condition: Excellent, with ancient chips and scratches; no modern repolishing. Purchased in 1976, Hong Kong. Price: USD $300; CAD $392 (13% HST will be applied on all sales in Canada)
