These are new doodads that I got off ebay. I think I need to go on a 12 step program to learn to resist ebay. But these pieces are still wonderful and I will use them as fobs on purses. The white pieces are carved Jadeite and the dark one is Nephrite Jade. They are all carved but the best piece is the middle one. And with my photographic skills in its infancy, I don't know the tricks to show how beautiful it is but please trust me.
The white pieces came with their own string necklaces. Really very beautifully done. When I get a package from the Orient, it is so exciting because the wrapping is different and my stomach always says " Oh goody something special". It feels a little like Christmas and then the feeling is complete when I look at my treasures.
