Seal set jade ming dynasty 1368-1644 ad.  Milcha Kheng
   
Ancient seal jade stone, ming dynasty ming 1368-1644 {china years}

I have a set of stamp / seal of greenish-white (light green) Jade.
This set is a relic of the Ming dynasty, and I obtain it as a legacy from my great-grandfather.
After the fall of ming dynasty, they bring the stamp when they migrate from China to Indonesia.
Jade was already belong of our family for five generations.

A little story from our great-grandfather who was a servant of the Empire; a set of stamps consists of six pieces stamp / seal in the form:
1. Ba Gua (eight cardinal point directions)
2. 2 Pcs god Thouw Te Kong (the god of the earth) in standing and sitting position.
3. Goddess Guan Yin (goddess of compassion)
4. God Jie Lai Hut / Ru Lai Fo / Mi Le Fo
5. Swords with Dragon ornament

Jade stamp is very rare, maybe there some people have a similiar jade, but no one have the state stampel of Ba Gua, with the ancient china writing, inverted (as a stamp).
On every jade is written:
1482 Ming Dynasty
Longevity
Always-Victorious
