Subject:How old is this JADE?
Posted By: william Mon, Apr 09, 2018 IP: 66.130.74.157

I would like to ask the experts here their opinion about this jade. Is it modern or old?

Probably not old and probably "Afghanistan" jade or the like--white serpentine.

+I'll go along with Okaba, this just does not look like Jade.

Agree with both Bokaba and Ernest. Do not like the look of its material. Is its actual color more white or celadon. it is too translucent to be nephrite, IMHO. Possibly jadeite but very unlikely since you can see a few white carving lines on the top picture, I believe it can be scratched. Try to do a scratch test and let us know. In short, probably a modern piece but low resolution pictures sometime can mislead even experience jade experts. Thanks for sharing.
