The Chinese legend of the Moon Toad

"The famous astronomer Chang Hêng was avowedly a disciple of Indian teachers. The statement given by Chang Hêng is to the effect that 'How I, the fabled inventor of arrows in the days of Yao and Shun, *70 obtained the drug of immortality from Si Wang Mu (the fairy 'Royal Mother' of the West); and Chang Ngo (his wife) having stolen it, fled to the moon, and became the frog--Chang-chu--which is seen there.' The lady Chang-ngo is still pointed out among the shadows in the surface of the Moon." 93 Dr. Wells Williams also tells us that in China "the sun is symbolized by the figure of a raven in a circle, and the moon by a rabbit on his hind legs pounding rice in a mortar, or by a three-legged toad. The last refers to the legend of an ancient beauty, Chang-ngo, who drank the liquor of immortality, and straightway ascended to the moon, where she was transformed into a toad, still to be traced in its face. It is a special object of worship in autumn, and moon cakes dedicated to it are sold at this season."

A variety of Tremolite Jade

One of the classic Chinese jades. It consists almost entirely of tremolite, but may contain up to 5 wt.-% of impurities such as diopside, epidote, clinozoisite, olivine, dolomite, quartz, magnetite, pyrite, apatite, limonite and carbonaceous matter, which are disseminated in the ground mass and impart various shades of colours. In trade, four colour varieties are distinguished: white, yellow, blue and black Hetian Jade. White Hetian Jade, typically off white to very pale yellow and containing more than 99 wt.-% of tremolite, and yellow Hetian jade, which owes its deeper yellow colour to iron oxide inclusions, are the most valuable ones. The blue varieties contain microscopic inclusions of bluish green silicate minerals (other than actinolite) and the black varieties contain up to 5 wt.-% of both iron minerals and carbonacous matter.
