    This lavender jadeite material is carved as a flattened disc with a hole in the centre, which is called bi. According to ancient Chinese cosmology, this form mirrors the arch of the sky across which the sun moves and the stars revolve. It is not only a symbol of completeness and unity, but it also represents the pursuit of perfection and fullness in one’s life. This jadeite pendant, despite its simple outlines, bears the profoundness of ancient Chinese wisdom and ideology.
