Live your life well while wearing this fabulous color Burmese jadeite "old mine" bangle bracelet. Size is 56mm inside diameter, 13mm wide. The green color varies throughout as you can see in the photos taken in natural outdoor light and at different angles to show off the color as it really is. The dark green is "yang" for assertiveness, power in life. The lighter green balances this strong "yang" because it is "yin" And there are some apple green veins, a cherished color, throughout. Icy cold to the touch, well polished all around. High "chime" indicates the fine quality of the jadeite stone.
Purchased during Ying Yu Jade shopping trip to China near the Burma border, directly from the jade carver so we can experience the quality of jadeite stone the carvers use. Purchase was in the year 2003. I actually bargained and purchased this for myself, but didn't try it on because I didn't want the jade seller to know I wanted it personally so he wouldn't keep increasing the price! To my dismay, after I bought it, I realized it was too large for my small wrist, but I keep it in my office so I can look at it, touch it every day.
Tested by refraction, genuine Burmese jadeite.
