    I picked this up with the serpentine piece I also bought, different seller. Just arrived this morning. Bowl stands 1 5/8" tall and measures 3 1/4" across the top. The foot measures 1 1/4". I have been googling images since the day I bought this, which is why I am wondering if this is nephrite although it is a different shade of color. I cannot leave a small scratch although there are some marks on the foot from being slid over the years so I assume this has some age. Any opinions?
