Jade from Costa Rica

handmade beaded jewelry

Jade necklace

This pendant is a piece of jade from Costa Rica. My father visited this beautiful country many many years ago when he was a professor at Penn State University (In geophysics. Is it any wonder I married a physicist?) I'm delighted to say that I dug it up recently from a box of treasures from my youth. Here it is, mixed with African jade, white bamboo coral, and vermeil.

Does anyone know if the carvings mean anything?
