Wushan Jade Carving, Tianshui
Wushan County is teemed with Yuanyang jade, whose colors include emerald green, blackish green, light green and reddish brown. The jade is mainly carved into luminous glasses.

Those works with the theme of “silk road” and the local culture in northwestern China are quite popular with the tourists, for example, the square furnace, ancient road and the grottoes, Fu Xi, and the three-legged furnace.
