The Nephrite Sword

This little sword (actually designed to be a paper knife and just over 6 inches) was created in 1886. Made from from nephrite, gold, rose diamonds and sapphires, it was produced in the workshop of the workmaster Gabriel Niukkanen, in St Petersburg. This was on display at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.
