It's jade time!

Zephir and Francisco, a master jade maker who hunts for jade in the mountains of Guatemala with little but a burro in tow, keeps a beautiful garden and likes to water his jade more than his flowers. Here he's showing Zephir how to avoid cutting off her fingertips.

If everything goes according to plan Zephir will be makin' jade this afternoon.

Yes, that's a jade jaguar.

Ziggy, our Canadian-Jewish-German friend, weighing his options with this huge piece of jade.
