Synopsis: Covers all the major and lesser-known areas for jade production.
From Library Journal:
This survey of jade use around the world is actually an anthology of essays by prominent scholars. First, a gemologist explains the minerology of jade. Then a series of essays on jade use in China, from prehistory to the present, takes up about half of the book. Finally, shorter essays address jade use in Japan, the South Pacific, Europe, Burma, India, and the Americas. Excellent photographs throughout the volume capture the visual qualities that make jade so appealing. The ambitiousness of its scope makes this survey a valuable addition to the jade literature, but the contributions of the authors vary so widely in method and tone that the volume lacks unity. Suitable for general readers, interested laypersons, and students, though scholarly readers may find some sections of interest.
