When you have a jade cong as your base you pretty much can't go wrong with your lamp. This luminous lamp from Spaltana is made from a solid jade cong, a Chinese jade artifact which is square on the outside and circular on the interior. The four corners of the cong represent the four elements of water, fire, metal and wood and the four directions. The circular interior represents the connection to the sky. The Spaltana lamps are made of veined dark green jade and each pillar has a decorative motif carved in each of the four corners. The jade cong sits on a poplar base and the lamp shade is made from pongee silk. These rare table lamps sell for $1800.
