"Hong" Chinese red color veins throughout this creamy soft green jade bangle bracelet 53.5mm inside diameter, 14.5mm wide. Very well polished. Rare to find natural "hong" color on genuine jade. The hong veins are slightly rough because the jade carver did not want to ruin the natural overall appearance and texture of this spectacular jade bangle bracelet. Cherished by Chinese women.
Chinese river jade is natural color. The color comes from minerals in the river where the jade is mined. It is called "China's National Jade" and used exclusively by Chinese people until jadeite was introduced in the 19th century. It is used in Chinese medicine for health, and often worn by Chinese people as "medicine" for the healing qi energy. The jade is purchased by our jade carver in China and made exclusively for us.
