Taitung's Museum of Prehistory is holding an exhibit on Taiwan's history of jade. The unique exhibit is called Igniting the Stories Behind Taiwan Jade.
Jade is unique in that it is a mineral yet also a cultural and historical relic. Curator Lu Mei-fen says the history of jade in Taiwan spans thousands of years. The exhibit displays how the value of this precious stone was developed by humans throughout the ages. It also shows the history of jade in and outside of Taiwan from ancient ages to modern times.
The museum said it is the first time they are displaying 701 jade pieces unearthed from a land belonging to the Puyuma tribe. They have also borrowed 734 jade works from other collections. The insurance on the jade pieces is over NT$20 million.
The jade history exhibit is a rare opportunity to view these precious stones from Taiwan's history. Visitors can enjoy the unique show throughout the year until December 14.
