The green hues of jade permeate this piece as blues, golds and red-orange dance on the edges.  The jade stone is revered in Asian culture as a symbol of virtues such as wisdom and perfection.  A famous Chinese saying states, “Jade, without chiseling, cannot become a useful object” referring to the refining, yet painful process of life which continues to make us more useful.
