This book gives you the opportunity to build a museum quality art collection worth far more than its current price. The internet now makes archaic jade available to you. You buy jade directly from owners and dealers worldwide. Now you can find eBay prices at or below what art dealers once paid. But before you buy, you must know what the experts know. This is the first and only book that teaches you how to spot counterfeit jade pieces, how to judge the age of a jade carving, and which inscriptions belong to each era.

It gives you the information that you must have before buying archaic jade. It does this with over 300 color photographs, many labeled to make a point clear. The book uses a single subject and compares and contrasts its portrayal through the dynasties of China. The author uses four criteria throughout the book: crystal re-growth, color, aging and patina, and artistic style.
