Hand Painted "Jade" Egg
This jade egg, beautifully painted with a rooster and flowers, combines two highly prized symbols of Chinese culture. Jade is the most valuable and highest regarded gem in Chinese culture. The rooster signifies many positive traits such as honesty, prosperity, and luck.
The authenticity of the jade has not been verified. And although it passed the scratch test, it is believed that egg is made of some other hard, opaque stone intended to represent true jade.
