Hi Harry,
Your Phoenix is not jade and sadly not old.
It's made from serpentine. If you look at the last picture you posted one of the fins is chipped revealing a white surface.
The overall look is artificially stained to give the impression of age. This is a common occurrence with such items being sold in tourist type outlets.

Dear Mark,
Thank you for the fast response.
I bought this at a price as a decorative stuff, so it's okay.
Yes, i see a white surface, which should make strong doubts.
Thanks, for seeing this statue.
Your opinion is very helpful.
Sincerely regards
