Subject:Archaic Jade

HI
I found this jade today. I was wondering if it's an old piece or a modern piece made to look old. Thank you

Very modern piece with artificial weathering on its surface to make it look old. Probably not made of jade, i.e., not made of either jadeite or nephrite according to western definition of jade and stone is not beautiful enough to be jade according to Chinese definition of jade. Sorry.
