Vintage old mine lao pit jadeite mined prior to the year 2000 rare to find now. Classic fei cui natural green color jadeite bangle bracelet 56.5mm inside diameter, elegant 11mm wide. Slender widths 12mm and less were the traditional width for jade bangle bracelets for Chinese and Asian women, unlike the thick and wide jade bangles made for "foreigners" today. Moderate translucence, and you can see the lovely variation of veins throughout. Fine grain of old mine jadeite gives a high chime for authenticity. This jade bangle bracelet is a YYJ personal favorite. Not only the perfect jade bangle to wear, but an investment since this kind of jade is so rare and will increase in value. This is the kind of jade that was passed down to women in families. Rare and precious, and this price is still below retail value.
