Jade, Beijing, China

Part of our Beijing tour took us to a jade factory of sorts, where we got to see all sorts of jade transformed into everything from tiny stud earrings to giant boats. I love this one in particular because it was just so fascinating—3 moving jade spheres, one inside the other, all cut from 1 ball of jade. Amazing.
