Hetian jade

Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/5/10

speaking of Sinkiang jade, first we should mention Nephrite. Hetian jades are originated from the “ancestor of all the mountains”, i.e. the Kunlun mountain. It is renowned at home and abroad throughout the history. In history, many jade carvings such as the utensils for the rite of Zhou Dynasty, the royal seal of Qin Dynasty, the jade clothes of Han Dynasty, the jade lotus flower of Tang Dynasty, the Du mountain jade sea of Yuan Dynasty, the Zigangbiezi of Ming Dynasty all use Hetian jades as the raw material.
