Two solid dark xiuyan jade Baoding Balls. The Chinese believe Jade is a symbol of purity, grace, and beauty. Every aspect of jade has some meaning. Its color represents loyalty; its interior flaws, always showing themselves through the transparency, call to mind sincerity; its iridescent brightness represents heaven; its admirable substance, born of mountain and of water, represents the earth. Stone is cooler to the touch and is believed to balance out excess yang energy.
