China's Luminous Jade Wine Cups ( Spelled Luminuous on the box)
New in Original Box- Some light wear on the outside of the box due to age.
Cups are 2.5" Tall and 1.5" Wide
The appeal of Jiuquan’s famous cups is not just aesthetic, though.
They are also very hardy and able to withstand very hot and cold temperatures without breaking.
Their durability, unusual raw materials and a complicated crafting process makes
Jiuquan’s luminous cups an expensive craft.
With a marbled, mottled dark green colour and flecks of sparkle, luminous cups get their characteristic appearance from a type of jade found in the Qilian mountains of northwest China’s Qinghai Province.
01
Craftspeople in Jiuquan still make 'luminous cups', as they did two thousand years ago. Nowadays, they are popular as a souvenir from the area__
