Jade Double Fish, Green Apatite Necklace

Approx 18" long, 2" x 2" pendant, triple strand



This green jade pendant is of two carved fish facing the Chinese symbol for luck.  The Chinese symbol is cut out.  I have used three strands of small green apatite nuggets that is the same color to complete the necklace.  The necklace is finished with a 18k gold vermeil hook clasp.

The fish is symbolic of abundance, prosperity, wealth and persistence.  It is also believed to represent an advantage in business.  A pair of fish symbolizes a happy marriage.  

Chinese royalty has worn jade for centuries.   It is believed to be a spiritual stone and has been called the jewel of heaven.  It represents the five principal virtues:  charity, modesty, courage, justice and wisdom.  From cloudy white to golden brown, light to dark green, to rare lavender, jade is the most highly prized Asian gemstone.  Jade has been regarded as the most precious stone for thousands of years.  It is believed to protect the wearer and ensure good luck and good health as well as to increase life span.

Green apatite is a naturally occurring gemstone known for its unusual intense green color that has a lot of luster.
