We are excited to receive these ultra rare absolutely stunning Neolithic Figurine Carvings found in the rarest material, the mysterious yellow "Crystal" - Shui Jing. Please note that we only have one piece of each figurine listed in our possession.

Neolithic cultures often use three of the principal hard stone minerals, the most common being Nephrite Jade, Agate and what locals call them as "Shui Jing" (Yellowish or Red Tint) which stands for simply "Crystal". Studies have shown them to be Pure Silicon Dioxide (Natural Glass) and they show that this material DOES NOT contain levels of Network modifiers (Na) or Stabilisers (Ca) which are indications of man made glass.

It has always been long speculated in some scientific studies that this "Crystal" is Meteoritic glass AKA Tektite that were found in the deserts of Inner Mongolia to Liaoning, China just like the Libyan Desert Glass.

The importance of Shui Jing is that as with libyan desert glass, it can only have been formed by a massive meteorite strike, probably impacting on a desert high in silica sand. Locations of their impact sites have been in recent years speculated to be North China within the twin craters in Tong Liao, and its possible ejection path indentified.

This unique glass was formed by a large meteorite impact whereby pure gaseous and liquid SiO2 was ejected at a low angle, picked up other ejecta, and formed spheres of up to 1 meter in diameter. Strong circumstantial evidence points to the location of the mine or quarry in or around Tong Liao prefecture.

Ceremonial artifacts from Neolithic Times also include some of the earliest known examples of jade and shui jing working. This Neolithic culture is known for its pig dragons and embryo dragons. Statuettes, including figurines of pregnant women, fertility idols, detailed animals/ insects carvings and many unexplained "extraterrestrial" figurines with large eyes and elongated heads are also found throughout the ancient sites.

Excerpts from Wikipedia:

"The Neolithic (/ˌniːoʊˈlɪθɪk) also known as the "New Stone Age", began about 12,000 years ago when the first developments of farming appeared in the Epipalaeolithic Near East, and later in other parts of the world. In China, it extended until 1200 BC where the Neolithic period comprises a progression of behavioural and cultural characteristics and changes, including the use of wild and domestic crops and of domesticated animals and the development of metallurgy, leading up to the Bronze Age and Iron Age.

The well documented Neolithic culture in the Liao river basin. The cultures sites have been found in an area stretching from Inner Mongolia to Liaoning, and dated from about 4700 to 2900 BC and was discovered by the Japanese archaeologist Torii Ryūzō in 1908 and extensively excavated in 1935 by Kōsaku Hamada and Mizuno Seiichi."

During Neolithic times, the key known sources of nephrite jade, and Shui Jing Crystals in China for utilitarian and ceremonial items were the now depleted deposits in the Ningshao area in the Yangtze River Delta (Liangzhu culture 3400–2250 BC) and in an area of the Liaoning province in Inner Mongolia (Hongshan culture 4700–2200 BC). Jade was used to create many utilitarian and ceremonial objects, ranging from indoor decorative items to jade suits. Jade was considered the "imperial gem." From about the earliest Chinese dynasties until present, the jade and shui jing deposits in most use were from the region of Khotan in the Western Chinese province of Xinjiang (jade deposits from other areas of China, such as Lantian, Shaanxi, were also in great demand).

The name nephrite is derived from lapis nephriticus, which in turn is derived from Greek λίθος νεφριτικός; νεφρός λίθος, which means 'kidney stone' and is the Latin and Greek version of the Spanish piedra de ijada (the origin of jade and jadeite).[3] Nephrite is a variety of the calcium, magnesium, and iron-rich amphibole minerals tremolite or actinolite (aggregates of which also make up one form of asbestos). The chemical formula for nephrite is Ca2(Mg, Fe)5Si8O22(OH)2.[1] It is one of two different mineral species called jade. The other mineral species known as jade is jadeite, which is a variety of pyroxene. Nephrite jade is an ornamental stone used in carvings, or beads.
