Charlie Wittke's curator insight, February 13, 2014 7:24 PM

The reason Jade was and still is so popular in China is because the Chinese believe it had magical properties and that it preserved the dead. The silk the Chinese made was so popular but its production was kept a secret for a very long time.

Andreina Ruiz's curator insight, February 19, 2014 3:03 AM

Jade and bronze were important and popular materials in Ancient China. Who would have thought that Jade was used to preserve the dead. As for bronze, it was used to make weapons, ritual vessels, pots, bells, and mirrors.

Elizabeth Otis's curator insight, February 21, 2014 8:29 PM

This explains why so many things were made out of jade in ancient china.
