A nearly translucent-clear jadeite belt hook, well carved with a dragon-head terminal coming up against a striding Chilong dragon over a bed of clouds exhaling from its mouth. A circular stud on the opposite side. The stone is of a light celadon green with a faint tint of blue and translucent cloud-white inclusions. Robustious in an archaic practical form with charms. A pleasure to behold.
