This is a cute dainty natural jadeite jade Buddha pendant. The jade is well carved into the shape of the Happy Buddha or Laughing Buddha, holding a "ruyi" scepter in one hand and an ingot in the other hand. In Chinese, Ruyi means "everything goes well". Ruyi is revered by Chinese people for its symbol of power, good fortune and longevity while ingot represents wealth and prosperity. The color is uniform imperial green with shading. The surface of the stone is silky smooth and buffed to high polish. There is no stone lines, cracks or chips in this pendant.
Buddhas are often carved in jade as the stone symbolizes purity and balance. This pendant is great on its own or can be layered with your favorite necklaces.
