Discussions, identification and analysis of Stones and Gems used in Netsuke
7 posts • Page 1 of 1
I am interested in any information on Netsukes being made of natural carved Emerald. There appears to be the two holes and has the characteristics of a netsuke. Any information on a carved emerald netsuke would be appreciated.
I never saw in my life any emerald netsuke, no antique nor modern one...
no reference in any book or catalog...the photo is too small, but I assume
is not netsuke but a small okimono and the stone colour is or turquoise (probably) or green jadeite (very precious)...if turquoise probably (because of the colour homogeneity) is not the original stone which is mixed with black
so if you take a macro photo many of us will be in condition to give you
an concrete opinion but since now, believe me, 1 against 10 this is not at all
an emerald netsuke...
Excellence in netsuke art don't need signature or pedigree, or age, only quality, aesthetics, beauty.
