This snuff bottle is carved with Ru-Yi, a mythical animal bat, money, and fruits on the surface. The natural nature of the green and white also makes the bottle unique. It is a meaningful piece for friends or family as a gift or collectible.

The animal bat means "lucky fortune and prosperity" because the sound to read the bat is the same as "福" (lucky with fortune) in Chinese words, that is why the bat is used in all the Chinese carvings.

Luyi symbol means everything you wish will come true.

Jade is believed to have a protective function ( against the bad fortune ) in the Chinese culture. Genuine jade shows its beauty after being worn for a period of time. The even distribution of the green and white and the transparency of the jade are used to calculate the value of the piece. The nature of the texture and color is not the lab jade that can compare.
