thanks you so much for replying! apologies for the poor quality and minimal photos in the initial posting, i have attached ones of higher quality if it's of any help.
completely agree with your advice that archaic jade needs to be handled. guess i was drawn to the craftsmanship of the object, thought it could potentially be nephrite jade? also it's absolutely humongous in comparison to other 'neolithic' jade masks i've come across which is rather odd (a little over 40 cm in length!!!)
any further thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
