Very difficult to tell the difference.... I will guess the pebble is jade with a stain to enhance the russet and the bulbous one is glass imitation.

Dear all, thank you.
Yes the pebble shaped bottle is glass. I can guarantee that it is impressive when seen in real.
Among who has seen it, including Chinese dealers, there are some who are still convinced that it is jade.
I am posting other two glass bottles, imitating two different types of agate.
Kind regards
Giovanni

Thanks Giovanni for sharing!

The second bottle could be a glass imitating Jasper bottle.the first one is more interesting, while the craving looks contemporary.

Cheers.
