If you think diamonds are forever, wait until you learn about jade. Jade objects were valued by Chinese emperors and fought over by Mughal princes. For 7,000 years, this lustrous gemstone has been treasured for its rarity, beauty and symbolic value.


A docent from the Asian Art Museum will deliver an educational and entertaining multimedia talk on the topic. Come and join us. No signup required.
