With more than 400 hawker stalls at the Jade Market, visitors can have their pick from jade pieces of every shape, color, and size, from rare jade carvings to small, inexpensive pieces, with prices all subject to the skills of the barterer.
While jade is often carved into traditional lucky shapes and symbols such as dragons and Buddhas, the most valuable stones are used to make simple, round, polished cabochons.
Jade is a favorite adornment among the Chinese, prized not only for its beauty but also because it is believed to protect the wearer.
