Hi everyone - I told my story in a previous thread on here, but I will reiterate, now that I have the pictures.
A colleague of mine is from China, and has a Master's in Geology. He used to work in archaeology with the Chinese government, mainly in Tibet, and
developed a passion for collecting jade of antiquity. He is a member of a prestigious national Chinese jade collector's association, and routinely is
asked to appraise pieces for antique stores, private buyers, etc. etc. Many of his pieces are traded amongst these members rather than bought and sold
in auctions, etc, as they are obsessive and possessive collectors.
Long story short (I think it's in the other thread), I came to know about his hobby because of the work that I do, and he would bring prehistoric
pieces to my house for my amusement, and for my clients. He pulled out a piece that he stated was an 'alien' (I took a few badly lit pictures with my
iPad in the initial post) and after weeks of delay, we finally met again, and he brought over many of his other pieces. I did my best to photo them
with a tape measure.
Now, HIS story is that 5000-10,000 years ago, some Chinese believe that 'god men' came from the sky and gave large amounts of technological
information to humans. Their likenesses were captured in jade, mostly of these beings in a crouched 'seated' position, looking like they were wearing
helmets with breathing apparatus. Their eyes were large, and they had odd proportions and strange ears. He says that they do not look anything like
the hundreds of other human or animal pieces that he owns from this time period.
He noted the time period of the pieces in my pictures as 'Red Hill Culture Period' which is prehistoric, and said that the pieces were carved with
grit/sand or animal hide. He's bringing over a book on this time period and I will take a better look at it. He will also email me some geological
All of the pieces linked here were found in Manchuria, close to the Mongolian border, Northeast China.Edit: He added in an email: It is called 'xiuyan
jade' from Liaoning Province.
My disclaimer: I am actually not that interested in aliens or alien theories, per se. I have different metaphysical interests which is how I
found this site. I found his pieces curious and interesting enough to start a thread as maybe someone else will also find this neat.
