Oh I did not ask. I will go check.

I thinking...7 mm high!!!!:kiss2::kiss2::kiss2::kiss2::kiss2::kiss2::kiss2:.

I possibly butchered the Mandarin so badly she maybe did not understand my question about zoning. But she said, 是光投射的阴影 etc etc. Which I took to mean no, it is the light.....I pressed the translate button....

And the usual 完美.

I am supposed to be wearing red, though.....

This is Muna jade. How you can tell? It's a high domed. At 7 mm :)

She said plenty water and is high ice very very icy.

I was not looking for a green cab. But....

Gorgeous!!

Please forgive my ignorance, but what is the difference between plenty water, and very, very icy?

ChaiK, if the second set of numbers are the dimensions of the ring, isn't that 11.2mm kinda high?
It is 7 mm high. Which is pretty high for a green one.

She said
饱满 so this means it is a full cab. And I took it to mean also good texture as in good water.

Then she said
高 冰
Which just means highly icy, as in high translucence.

I suppose you cannot have highly icy without water. I don't really know. I probably just in my mind thought all of that when she said this was a good piece of jewellery.

I was / am not looking for a green cab, though.

Better not. It is waxed so not sure if that will remove the layer faster.

Clean with cloth is ok. Or mild soap with water. On livestream if there is dust in crevice, they use a soft tooth brush to gently brush it off.
The sonic cleaner manufacturers say specifically not to use with porous stones like opal or emerald, presumably because the liquid inside the stone might pick up the vibrations and fracture the stone. It just occurred to me that if jade can be dyed, then it too must be porous. Maybe the wax is to keep moisture from penetrating into the pores of the jade?

Yes it's porous without the last waxing step. Not so much to prevent moisture, also daily chemicals, pollutants, dust settling etc. The wax renders a nice sheen and intensifies colours too.

@ChaiK that ring is totes amazing

Are you thinking about it?

I'm getting some cheap goodies for presents.

Waiting to finalise
I don’t know. I like Hulus and pendants. Lace earrings, things like that. I wanted a cab very badly at one point last year and then I got the Hulu which I love to bits. I go and think. She showing me more pics.

I suddenly like Hulu rings a lot. I missed one. It was so fat and was on offer at 12 000 rmb. That one I would have gotten. Let me find pic for you to see.

OMG. I so blind. It was for 4999 rmb. An even better deal. And I missed it! It was with Number 5.

I too late for this one. But this one, I would have bought.

Look. Fat one. Missed it orredy.

@mellowyellowgirl , I thought it was 12 000 rmb (@@). I asked her and she said sold. This was a while back. Today, I looking at it and only 4999 rmb!

Anyway, maybe this jade quality not that good but for 4999 rmb, why not? Is all diamonds too and 18K gold. I remember Number 5 confirming that.

Next time I get Hulu ring, must be this fat type. Fat and round and high, this type of cut. Not the usual Hulu that you see.

No, don't sacrifice for patchiness. Must be even colour. If you shelling out, must be like this.

Like I want a hulu, but I must must have a particular shape of hulu and it must tick all boxes for quality too. I don't mind the odd spot somewhere that cannot be seen. That's it.

Patchiness on pendants or bangles I love. Not on my ring. I decided. Unless not obvious.
