This is an incredible piece of work. There are three separate balls of jade carved within themselves so that each one is separate and independent of the others. You can reach into the ball and actually move the inner balls.
How they do it I haven't a clue. It comes with a matching jade stand. It's really a nice piece of workmanship. It measures approximately 4" in diameter and sits 5" tall on the stand.
The dragon and phoenix are the perfect couple in Feng Shui. Dragon is "yang" while phoenix is "yin", and they complement each other in creating yin-yang balance to harvest successful matrimonial bliss. This celestial couple is the symbol of everlasting love.
The Dragon and Phoenix couple brings not only strengthens relationships. It can even relight the fires of a kindling relationship with the fiery energy of the Phoenix. The perfect item as well for the single female or bachelor looking to find true love.
Jade is the most important gem to the Orientals and is regarded as the ‘Stone of Heaven’. Prized for its healing powers and protective qualities, jade is said to assist in the quest for immortality.
The Chinese character for jade resembles a capital ‘I’ with 3 lines across it – the top, middle and bottom. The top line represents Heaven, the middle for Mankind and the bottom line stands for Earth. Jade accessories are very common in Chinese families – many people wear their jade for life. Jade is said to be able to shield their owners from harm and enhance their health.
This special combination Jade and Phoenix and Dragon couple bring out the best of all items.
HOW ARE THEY MADE?
The sphere is turned on a lathe then conical holes are drilled towards
the center. The maker has a set of "L" shaped tools the one with the
longest upright has the shortest cutter and the one with the shortest
upright has the longest cutter. Starting with the longest tool he
lowers it to the narrow bottom of each hole in turn and rotates it to
cut the innermost ball free.
Then he gets the second tool which does not reach so far down the hole but can cut a wider arc and separates
the second ball.
He continues working from the innermost to outermost
shell. For obvious reasons, usually only the outermost balls are
The outer layer is twice as thick as the inner layers. This is because
the two outer layers are fused together.
The reason for this is that the outer layer with the dueling dragons is carved so deeply that if it were free moving it would be too fragile and shatter, so it has to be
fused to the 2nd layer to make it strong enough to avoid breaking. The
very inner ball at the center is also counted as a layer making up the
total number of layers. Therefore counting the center ball and the
other moveable layers will make up the total layers of the ball minus
two layers, those remaining two layers are the ones fused together
making up the outer shell.
For example - an 18 layer ball will have 16 moveable layers (including
the center ball) plus the 2 fused outer layers.

I received the beautiful brass dragons,
bronze dragon incense burner and Kuan Yin.
They are absolutely beautiful. I paid almost
double for a smaller brass dragon from a
different company that looks almost childish
next to yours.
It is very obvious the quality of this artwork
is far superior and the energy in my house feels
like it has lifted. The small dragon you included
as a gift is much nicer than I expected,
thank you very much! I will enjoy these for many years, many thanks.
I look forward to ordering my Christmas presents from you.
