Chinese carvers have been converting stone to art for centuries

A WORD ABOUT CHINESE CARVINGS
JADE (Nephrite) is an easy mineral to contaminate, in the way that the surface and color strongly can be changed depending on surrounding environment, Burial, etc..Jade was colored artificially for millenniums. Although we never knowingly purchase dyed pieces for resale, since coloring has been done by the Chinese for over 2000 years, it is impossible to tell without ruining the surface IF an item has been colored artificially, or WHEN the artificial color was applied.
