    Loose ring handles and expert carving distinguish this fine nephrite vase. Jade has been known in China as the “royal gem” since as early as 3000 B.C.E. Its value comparable with that of gold and diamonds in the West, jade was used not only for the finest objects and cult figures, but also in grave furnishings for high-ranking members of the imperial family. Because if its hardness, it has been used for everything from weaponry to the most intricate decorative designs.
