British Museum: Chinese Jade

The world of jade is utterly fascinating, and those captivated by this material will have a field day here. This online tour is part of the British Museum's commitment to broadening access to their vast array of items that might not normally be visible to the general public. Here, visitors can learn about the Chinese fascination with jade through 21 slides that profile unique and valuable items constructed of jade. The tour illustrates the development of Chinese jade from around 5000 BC to the modern period. The items here include lovely, long, and smooth Neolithic blades to later plaques, ornaments, dragons, animal and human sculptures. First-time visitors simply must start by looking at the magnificent coiled dragon that offers smooth contours and compelling details.
