Subject:Nephrite object
Posted By: John A. Sat, Mar 09, 2019 IP:

I was wondering if anyone knows what this object is of and if it has any age or value. I went to a local fred myer jeweler which did some sort of test and said it was possibly radioactive but she had to send it out to see what it was made of but I declined. Anyway was wondering if any of the experts had an opinion. It really did not seem she knew what she was talking about...

A pawn from a chess set, perhaps?

My opinion: it is a modern carving, dipped in dye stuff to look exotic. Most likely a Serpentine.
