pale yellow and green jade, Qijia Culture (2200 - 1700 BCE) 16 x 7.5 x 7.5 inches with stand As early as 7,000 years ago, the Chinese used jade to fashion symbolic weapons, body ornaments, and ritual objects. Jade is valued for its extreme durability, color, texture, translucence, and opulent tactile quality. Because of these characteristics, jade was chosen by the ancient Chinese elite and became associated with wealth and power. Three major synchronous and overlapping cultures, including Hongshan, Liangzhu, and Longshan, witnessed the exploitation of jade as the preeminent symbol of cultural power.
