Nucleo - “Jade”
Jade stone was known from ancient cultures as in the Chinese empire and the south America cultures as precious and symbolic material. Used for elite good materials, the Jade developed a long tradition of craftsmanship, even now much important for many cultures.
Jade is a single block made of epoxy resin with a submerged organic material – a trunk cut from a 200-year-old Italian oak tree – in the liquid polymer with pigment added. The reaction between the two parts of the resin components creates the cracks as a natural process. The resulting hunk of verdant resin is raw and refined, and has a certain amount of light-catching glitz. It suggests mineral deposits deep within the earth while still retaining a sense of high design.
