The fish and water are symbols of prosperity. This carved nephrite jade river pebble depicts a stylized goldfish with a three-pronged swaying tail. Merrily spraying a stream of water into a flowery fountain. The celadon green stone is dense with an even shine, variation in russet from a mixture of tremolite and minerals. Alluring classic artistry in low relief, with distinct preservation of the stone's organic form. The highly polished pebble stone is tactile and soothing to the touch. A newer jadeite bead on a short cord has been added for play and handling.
