Good to be updated,but realistically,would like to know what was the 'SOLD' price (if any buyer) esp. for the nephrite pebbles of 47g and asking price of 12,000USD. Also,the crouching tiger seems to be of a lychee translucency. An unusual nephrite.

At the moment many owner of pebbles sit on their stock knowing that the price are going only one way - UP! This pebble is not yet sold.
As for the crouching tiger the color of the nephrite jade got a special tinge as the intial picture was taken with poor lighting and the post-treatment of the image somewhat skewed the tinge to this lychee blue white.
