Unearthed in the cemetery of the Guo State (1,046-256 BC) in Sanmenxia city, the gorgeous jade pendant about 126 centimeters in length is composed of seven jade Huang (ritual object) with beads made of red agates and other materials. The jade pendant was owned by a king of the Guo State, which provides physical evidence for studying the jade wearing system of the Western Zhou Dynasty (1,046-771 BC).
