Very nice pictures, thanks for posting them.

I also feel amazing about your nice comment that shows you know a lot about Chinese traditional things!

But I can not tell you more about the point of your interest since my major was science instead Chinese literature or history!
In the chemistry class our teacher told us the molecule form of the main substance of jade!  Then  he said: “Gold, silver, diamond and jade are rare things in world so they become valuble!  But they look like ordinary things in the chemists' eyes! ”

美玉无瑕---------Good jade has no spots with it!
金银有价,玉无价!!!-----------Gold or silver has its own fair price on the market!But jade is ‘priceless’ ----------in other words, it is difficult for you offer a piece of jade a reasonable price since its components are very complicated!----------Many gemologists failed for their wrong judgement on some jade-stones!

About your words "I am 100% sure it is NOT jade." ----------------

I partly agree with you sinc ...

Sorry to disappoint you but I stand by what I said, this carving IS NOT JADE, the colour and structure of the stone even at the front are neither nephrite nor jadeite, it is another hard stone that has certain similarities to jade but is NOT the real thing.

China has many stones that use the word 玉 as part of the name but the minerals are different.

Again you are mistaken, maybe the Chinese name for this stone contains the word jade but it is certainly not true jade in any way.

About "Sorry to disappoint"

I wonder why you said so?  -----------
In china we often say the phrase ‘实事求是’----------Try to find out the truth from the real facts that is the basic work principal for our communist party!

I don't wish my words sounds like a  tree in air without roots! ------------- I feel happy with you for idea-exchange --------------and it is OK even such discussion becomes quarreling since that is the true meaning of the word ‘forum’!

You are welcome!!!!!!!    I think reader-friends including me would benifit from ‘the war of debating’!

I also want to know more about his story! -------------Jade-business itself is risky that needs your good eyesight on goods! --------------I wish I could improve my judgement through this thread!
