Seller: Top-Rated Plus Seller worldtraveler57 (3,408) 100%, Location: Miami, Florida, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 333336877406 This auction is for a Pre-Columbian Mesoamerican green jade pectoral stone bead. I love the curves and dimension of this piece and the erosion around the hole on one side which makes me so curious as to how this was used! And the patina is beautiful. “Greenstone is a common generic term for valuable, green-hued minerals and metamorphosed igneous rocks and stones which early cultures used in the fashioning of hardstone carvings such as jewelry, statuettes, ritual tools, and various other artifacts. Greenstone artefacts may be made of greenschist, chlorastrolite, serpentine, omphacite, chrysoprase, olivine, nephrite, chloromelanite among other green-hued minerals. The term also includes jade and jadeite, although these are perhaps more frequently identified by these latter terms. The greenish hue of these rocks generally derives from the presence of minerals such as chlorite, hornblende, or epidote. Greenstone minerals were presumably selected for their color rather than their chemical composition. In archaeology therefore, having a loosely applied general term is at least partially influenced by the observation that ancient cultures often used and considered these various green-hued materials as interchangeable.” The bead measures 10.5 x 18.8 x 11.0mm. The weight is 2.9 grams.
