From Ying Yu's Personal Jewelry Box: A gorgeous green vein of white Burmese jadeite grade A bangle bracelet. Size is 55.5mm inside diameter, 12.5mm wide. The quality of the jadeite stone is the very best, with high "chime" indicating fine grain. Icy cold and silky smooth polish. There is one significant green veins and a few lighter green veins scattered throughout for balance. White jade is "yin" and the darker green veins are "yang", so this is a very qi balancing of body, mind and spirit. Green jade is related to the liver meridian for body health and wellness. White jade is related to lung meridian, clear breathing, emotions of overcoming grief, compassion and wisdom.
Purchased directly from the jade carver during YYJ shopping trip in China near the Burma border in 2003. This jade carver makes jade bangles for Chinese and Asian women rather than for export. The jade carver studies the jadeite rough until he determines how he can best use the color in this precious stone, then on an auspicious day for him he carves the jade bangle bracelets, and pendants.
This is one of the jade bangle bracelets I purchased for myself but didn't try it on because then the jade carver would know it was "special" and demand a higher price. There are no prices on jade when you buy from the carvers, the deal is all about bargaining. When I did try it on it was slightly larger than my regular size, so if you are a jade lover, you are getting an excellent jade bangle bracelet at a price lower then you could now purchase in China.
