Description

    SPECTACULAR NEPHRITE JADE OBELISK
    Boulder Creek Mine, British Columbia, Canada

    This stunning piece has been carved from a single, massive boulder of fine Nephrite Jade and stands an impressive 6 feet 8 inches (203.2 cm) tall. The Jade has been tapered and polished to form an incredibly beautiful and imposing obelisk. The Jade surface swirls with patterning and has gorgeous shades of emerald, apple and forest green, with dramatic white cloudy veins and flecks of black. The obelisk is centered on a Jade base, hewn from the same boulder, measuring 14 inches square and 10 inches high. The creation of this one-of-a-kind piece is quite an achievement given the difficulty involved with cutting and polishing Jade: it is one of the hardest stones to work because it consists of microcrystalline interlocking fibers, making it a tough stone and very difficult to polish. This Jade obelisk is in excellent condition and makes a substantial statement.
    Overall Measurements: 14 x 14 x 80 inches (35.56 x 35.56 x 203.2 cm)


    Estimate: $15,000 - $20,000.
