Can tell me about age of this jade item ?

In my opinion the design appears to have been acid (or other method) etched into the rock (as opposed to carved) then buffed to “age” the piece especially around presumed areas of “wear”. The bases of the carvings should still show crisp delineation of the carved outline where wear did not yet reach.

All this with what looks like a perfectly drilled hole with no wear commensurate with age or other wear on the piece.

This looks like an artificially aged carving made in recent times.
