Neolithic Era
Jade Spade

During the Neolithic Era people discovered wonderful uses for jade. It wasn't the rare jewelry item of today, but a great stone that could be shaped into smooth, sharp implements. This jade spade dates to between 2100 BC and 2900 BC and was found at a dig in Chenggu County.
