Jade ring, yuan or huan. Of light green grey jade with raised dot pattern between two plain, rim edges. Typical late Zhou ring disk. Called a 'girdle ornament'. Raised bosses-about five across the width-engraved and slightly modelled; some are connected like a 'cloud and thunder' scroll. Seems to go wiith 30-8-8.
