A rare find in jade bearing areas, the hydrogrossular garnet from which this pendant is carved is the only form of garnet that neve forms crystals, but has a massive structure more similar to the jades. As a jewel, it's often used by the Chinese to simulate the more expensive jadeite - and this exquisite-quality piece of the starkest white tone shows precisely why. It's also an extremely hard stone that takes a glass-like finish, and comes in a wide range of colours from the sedate through to the rich and vivid.


Measuring in at 30mm long and 25mm wide at its widest point, this piece takes the form of a niho mako or shark's tooth, and is small enough to be comfortable for everyday wear. Its brilliant white tone, high translucency and high loss all mark it as an exceptional piece, meaning that it wouldn't be astray acompanying even the finest of formal outfits.
