    If I recall properly that green one on the bottom is made from fiber optic glass.
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    Agree Son. We have a lot of Chinese antiques and Jade is important. Good eye.

    Just to clear up some Jade info .

    Here in California and the west coast of north America .
    we have Jade harbor in Big Sur ,CA where you can go scuba dive for jade for free just follow the rules .
    and people do the same thing in British Columbia and that is where they mine NEPHRITE JADE and export to china .
    but they do sell sample pieces for about $50.00 and rings in different sizes for $10.00

    all and all just some more info and a video of the mining which is pretty good .
