A white nephrite jade Nehulay toggle, the pet mongoose of the God of Wealth Vaisravana Jambhala. The mutton fat Haitian Jade 和田玉 mongoose is vigorously carved in the round, and highly polished with a natural unctuous usage sheen. The jewel-spitting creature is characterized by a long tail curl behind its hefty body. He holds a gold ingot 元寶 under its chin, where two pierced cord holes through the front paws, giving this critter a sweet charm as a perfect fitting bestower of wealth.
