The best white jade in the world is called "mutton fat", for its pure white color and oily, soft luster. The most valuable ones come from He Tian, a town in Northwest China with rivers that produce the prized namesake jade.
This spectacular bottle is carved from a substantial piece of white jade. The jade is a pure, saturated, lustrous white with no inclusions or blemishes. It possesses the characteristics of fine white jades from the region. Weighting at an impressive 160 grams, it is carved on both sizes featuring 2 large butterflies. A gray, all natural carnelian top with the most beautiful swirls caps it off, highlighting its unmatched elegance.
This type of white jade is extremely valuable and passionately sought after. This is a very rare piece that remains the most important in our collection of fine snuff bottles.
