Fei Cui1The Chinese call jadeite fei cui, which is the name for the river Kingfisher bird (Alcedinidae). As legend has it, the male is red and the female is emerald green (cui in Chinese), and when they come together they are equally as colorful as jadeite. As you can see by the photo, the fei cui is certainly very colorful.
