In Ancient Costa Rica, jade possessed mystical qualities because of its superiority to other stones, becoming a symbol of high rank and authority. This cool translucent bluish-green jade is soothing to the touch and appealing to the senses. The incised details and the symmetrical balance elude a solemn and graceful timelessness. Wondering who might have worn this pendant around his neck, one can sense a sensible spirituality and a strong inner strength. - (PF.2807)
