Chinese Greenish-White Nephrite [S.G.=2.82] Ceremonial Arrow Head
Incredible Chinese greenish-white nephrite [specific gravity = 2.82] arrow head…..the detail on the filagree is quite nice. Not sure of an exact date of origin, judging by the design and the aging on it, likely 20th century at a minimum. The carving measures about 5 3/8 inches long; 1 1/2 inches wide at the widest; and 1/4 of an inch thick. It has been scratch tested for hardness with a sharp steel prod….it is hard and real shiny. It weighs about 48 grams.
