Ancient Thai Styled Dragon Pendant, Hand Carved, Light Lavender/Green Jadeite Jade (Grade A) Carving by the World Renowned Gem Carver, Ronald Stevens. His work has been featured in the Smithsonian Magazine as well as in countless auction houses over his 40 year career as a Californian Gemstone Carver.
The Dragon Style in this carved pendant is an original design, making this item rare and unique.
This carving is made of jadeite Jade that is opaque and shows a medium lavender color with light green hues. Truly a unique item for only only the most prestigious of collections, this carving is so real looking and proportionately correct that it practically "comes to life" in front of you.
This special lavender jadeite jade only comes from the mountains of Kachin State, Myanmar and is considered by many, to be the 'stone of heaven' unequal in value and shrouded in mystery.
Lavender Jadeite is a very rare color in jadeite jade due to the fact that it needs the trace elements of vanadium and manganese to produce the violet, purple-lavender color in the crystal structure of the jadeite that makes it lavender in color. Vanadium is considered extremely rare in the areas of Kachin State where Jadeite is found and for it to naturally exist in sufficient quantities to produce the lavender color is one of the reasons this color is just so rare to find in any real saturation or quantity.
Lavender Jadeite Jade has become one of the most expensive colors in the Jade market today, and as a result it has continued to demand extremely high prices which have continued to rise every year. For this reason, Lavender jadeite has also become a great investment for those who like to have their money invested in hard assets.
Dragons are powerful and benevolent symbols in Chinese culture, with supposed control over watery phenomenon, e.g. summoning rain during a drought. Dragons are everywhere in China — in legends, festivals, astrology, art, names, and idioms.
Dragons traditionally symbolize potent and auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, typhoons, and floods. The dragon is also a symbol of power, strength, and good luck for people who are worthy of it. With this, the Emperor of China usually used the dragon as a symbol of his imperial power and strength.
Also known as Fei Cui by the Chinese, this special stone possesses very unique physical characteristics. For one, the density of Jadeite is far greater than that of most other stones and therefore it is extremely heavy for its size. It is also extremely cold to the touch and exhibits a radiant energy coming from within the stone.
Jadeite pendants and necklaces protect against deception and authoritative abuse for financial or sexual gain. Jade signifies peace through strength, and is also helpful in homes or occupations that encounter bullying or intimidation from violent children or teens.
Jadeite is excellent for healing feelings of guilt, and for extreme cases of defeatism. It also treats "pathological normality," an excessive desire to adapt oneself to a group, even if it is sect-like, exaggerated militarism, a follow-the-leader attitude, or the compulsive desire to give in to general opinion to belong no matter
