From personal ornamentation to funerary practice, from palace decoration to private devotion, jade has played a major role in Chinese social, cultural, and political life for millennia.

Exploring the history of this revered stone through the Grenville L. Winthrop Collection at the Harvard Art Museums-which includes some of the finest examples of ancient and archaizing jades outside China-this volume explains how and why jade developed its special significance. In-depth entries on over one hundred objects present recent archaeological discoveries and new information garnered from conservation analysis.
