There is an old Chinese saying that goes “Gold and silver are valuable, but jade is priceless.” It makes sense given the history of this precious stone.  Jade has adorned Chinese culture for almost 5,000 years, and for all that time it has been admired and valued for its hardness, purity of color and translucence. No wonder jade was the material most favored by artisans when creating sculptures containing messages meant to last.

This week’s New Arrival features a Buddha Head carved from “white jade,” formally called Han Bai Yu stone.  Considering the subject, it’s also understandable why this material was chosen to sculpt the Buddha. Unlike most green jade, white jade appears soft, milky and smooth; but like its deeper colored cousins, it is exceptionally durable. It will stand the test of time, and convey Buddha's message in the purest way possible. 

This Buddha Head is part of a collection of newly arrived, exquisite Buddhist 'White Jade' sculptures. They will be available at 50% off during the extended EXPANSION SALE from Saturday, Oct. 25 thru Friday, Oct. 31.  They join a giant selection of items listed at deep discounts for the next 7 days only!
