Rare Pure Jade Tortoise - Hand CarvedThis item was hand carved at a monastery in Myanmar, in the Golden Triangle (a dangerous and inaccessible place). The Burmese Hand Carved Jade Tortoise brings in harmony and longevity. Each Jade Tortoise from this temple is unique and is said to have been blessed with the protective aura of the temple (it is unscathed despite the violence and instability of the sub province). Rich businessmen/tycoons in the surrounding countries, as well as Feng Shui Masters will try to get them (from that temple) in bulk to use them as prestigious gifts to friends/attendees of a joyous occassion. They are very hard to get due to its dangerous location in the Golden Triangle. The Jade Tortoise might differ in the picture due to each one being unique (e.g. hand carved from a different piece of jade). Those who wish to order 10 or more, please enquire on the contact page. This item is popular because it is said to retain the protective aura of the unscathed temple.

When Daoji passed away at the Jing Ci monastery on the 14th day of 5th Lunar month (17 June 1207), Syncretic Taoism adopted him as a deity. Not long after that, even Buddhism began to respect him, and added him into the list of...Ji Gong in Full
