Joy is a jade ring!

Joy is a ring!

(Pic taken in Taiping, Malaysia. 2009)

No, this is not about 'Ringu' or the 'Ring, the 1998 Japanese horror flick starring Nanako Matsushima, Hiroyuki Sanada andRikiya Otaka or its 2002 United States remake - It's about a jade ring. Jade incidentally has a history as long as the Chinese civilization. Jade objects have been found as early as the Neolithic period (about 5000 BC), in Zhejian Province, and from the middle and late Neolithic period along the Lao River, the Yellow River, and in the Tai Lake region in China. The love story between the Chinese and jade continues till this day and Chinese love jade not just for its beauty, but its purity and grace. While gold to the Chinese is valuable, jade is said to be invaluable!
