Carved Agate Jade
Up for your consideration is this beautiful antique Chinese carved Agate Jade pendant which features fine quality openwork carving of fruit and birds. The agate stone is exquisite with natural coloring and a glossy translucence that is just beautiful. Looking at the piece in brighter light (especially with a flashlight behind it) you see natural agate band inclusions in the stone. These are very light, thought the stone was Jade at first,
There are several colors seen in this gemstone. The center area is the rich honey shade, the outer area is beautifully translucent with hints of very light green, and when looking at it outside I could see also see hints of very pale lavender in it. The lavender shows up nicely in the photos, please take note of it. The carving shows a parrot and eggplant type fruits on the outer part of the pendant and two, large, exotic, fruits in the center. There are gold filled links attached to the top and bottom of the pendant which are are soldered closed. Dropping from the bottom one is a large, finely detailed, sterling silver drop. This is a beautifully designed piece which features embossed metal on the top of it with intricate tassels and beaded metal drops at the very bottom of it.
The pendant is in excellent vintage condition all around.
The agate jade stone measures 2~1/2" long x 2" across
Total drop length with tassel measures 4~3/4" long
