“Jade. That strange lump of stone with its faintly muddy light, like the crystallized air of the centuries, melting dimly, dully back… It quite lacks the brightness of a ruby or an emerald or the glitter of a diamond. But this much we can say: when we see that shadowy surface… we seem to find in its cloudiness the accumulation of the long Chinese past…”

- Junichiro Tanizaki, In Praise of Shadows
