Gem stone flowers

Gem stone flower pen zai (Bonsai), a popular table top decoration since Qing dynasty. A beautiful name Jin Yu Man Tang - Gold & Jade Fill the Room, wishing for wealth and fortune. Colors of gems are vivid and consistent year after year, I particularly like the transparency of the stone.  As a little kid, I had not the appreciation for such traditional beauty.  Today, my love for them is growing strong.
