This nephrite type jade (Family of inosilicates, groups of amphiboles, continuous series between amhiboles and tremolites) comes from Yuxu Peak, Mongolian and Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Haixi, Qinghai province, renowned for the quality of its nephrite jades.
This one could almost be similar to the "ink jade", very dark nephrite, but this piece is not opaque enough to bear this name. This dark green jade therefore bears the name "Ta Qing" unfortunately untranslatable.

The dragon is almost always beneficial and helps gods and men to defeat the forces of evil or natural disasters.
The dragon appears, for example, in one of the versions of the flood myth.
He was one of the four animals symbolizing the cardinal points.
The dragon represented the sunrise so the East, spring and fertility, unlike for example the white tiger of the West.
As one of china's four sacred animals along with the Phoenix (Fenghuang), the Unicorn (Qilin) and the Turtle, the Dragon represents power and talent, so that brilliant people are often referred to as dragons.
The Year of the Dragon is a beneficial year, a sign of peace, wealth and good harvests.
The population remains very attached to the image of the dragon, especially in astrology. The Dragon sign is one of the most popular and sought after because it symbolizes power and success. It is also the years of the dragon that the birth rates are the highest in China.
The dragon is the animal of the Levant. It is blue or green. It is yang that predominates, a powerful masculine energy. Like the sovereign, he is a pivot between heaven and earth. It participates in the maintenance of harmony.
The dragon is a symbol of power. The emperor or the great dignitaries wore a ceremonial robe, called the mangpao. This garment was adorned with a five-clawed dragon wrapped around a pearl. The fabric was clad in a lotus pattern and knots that are the Buddhist emblems of happiness.
Its seed, deposited and frozen in the bowels of the Earth, becomes jade, a precious stone for the Chinese.
The Chinese attribute to jade all the virtues including that of preserving the bodies. Moreover, in the Zhou period, we see the first jades sewn on the shrouds.
In Taoism, dragons are considered benevolent and bring happiness and prosperity.
In Buddhism, the Dragon is the vehicle of Vairocana, the white Buddha sitting in the east (or center). His throne supported by Dragons probably derives from the Chinese imperial throne. The Turquoise Dragon is the mount of a large number of protective deities, guardians of treasures and gods of rain and thunderstorms. As guardians of treasures, Sino-Tibetan Dragons are the counterparts of Indian nagas. The Tibetan term druk (tib.brug) means both "dragon" and "thunder". Bhutan, a Buddhist kingdom, is called Druk Yul (Land of the Dragon). Its inhabitants, the drukpas, take their name from the spiritual lineage drukpa kagyu, originally from Tibet. This lineage was established by the sage Tsangpa Gyaré who, having once observed nine dragons disappearing in the sky near Gyantse decided to establish the monastery of Ralung. In Tibetan Buddhism, the rise to heaven of a group of Dragons is a sign of good omen.
