The so-called lingzhi was traditionally considered an herb of immortality. This ruyi scepter is carved out of a piece of jadeite and designed as a longevity fungus with its long stem. Its handle is decorated with small longevity fungi, flowers, and fruits. Of high-quality, this scepter is precious because jadeite stones of this size are rarely found.
