Shop at Xi’an’s Terracotta Army

Lintong Xi’an, Shaanxi, China

The tour of the museum is pleasant. At end of the visit, we pass by the shop. Lady tour guide says, “No need to go, just some trinkets.” To which, for a non-shopper like me, instead choose to go.

The shop claims the miniature status are made with the same dirt from the site/museum, which are first come first serve. Xi’an produces lantian yu jade 蓝田玉 (baidu), which is one of 4 major kinds. The name is from the Lantian Mount in Xi’an. Doesn’t the pendant looks like Chinese painting?
