The Manhattan Chapter is proud to present a great event -
Old Chinese Jades
Every GIA member is knowledgeable about jadeite, the type of
jade usually seen in jewelry. But nephrite jade-- the remarkable
material carved by the Chinese for over 5000 years-- is not
as widely known. Mr. Hoffman's illustrated talk will help
answer the essential questions about old Chinese jades:
Is it true jade or one of the many pseudo-jades?
Is the carving Chinese?
The most difficult question of all-- is it as old as the seller claims?
