Two solid yellow 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.
Jade balls are much heavier. They should be handled with care and used carefully. These two solid stone jade balls weigh a little over one pound combined and each ball is approximately 55 mm in diameter. Comes in a box.
