Jade: Ch'ing Dynasty Treasures From the National Museum of History, Taiwan
Through January 17, 1999
This magnificent collection of more than 300 jade and rock carvings at the National Geographic Society is absolutely astounding. The creations are mostly made of jade, but includes works of agate, amber, coral, lapis lazuli, rock crystal and turquoise. One example of the incredible pieces in the collection is a book of gold text carved into thin sheets of jade. The sheets are so thin they're almost transparent.
