      As an auspicious symbol of purity and integrity, Magnolia (yulan) is placed first among the five most popular flora species found in traditional Chinese gardens. An emblem of femininity and fairness, their sweet fragrance and creamy white petals evoke the elegant silhouette of a lady with long slender fingers, as the narration in ancient Chinese poetry went. Emitting a translucent vivacious glow, this jadeite of fine material perfectly depicts a fresh and lush magnolia flower seconds before it blossoms – a moment of graceful poise that was skilfully carved and transformed into eternal praise.
