Subject:Jade dragon
Posted By: Larry Thu, Jun 23, 2022 IP: 2003:ed:5f14:a985:6d

Hello, I have three Jades (possibly) and don't know much about Jade. But I made this water density test. It says 2,87 for this dragon carving. Might it be nephrite?

These jade dragon are very sought after and hence they are heavily copied in both nephrite jade and serpentine.
It looks like it's been acid treated.
Yours look like a much later copy. Circa later 20th century.

Dear Mark, thank you very much for your expertise on all the jade figures. I expected them to be modern, except the ram, I thought, might be of age.
