Hongshan Culture is the most important Neolithic archaeological culture in northeast China. Named after excavation at the Hongshan site in Chifeng city, north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, it developed in southeast Inner Mongolia, western Liaoning and northern Hebei provinces, dating from 6,500 to 5,000 years ago.

Jades of the Hongshan Culture are varied, with dragons, phoenixes and people represented. Unearthed in Xiawa county of Inner Mongolia, the jade dragon on the stamp is typical of jades from the Hongshan Culture. The jade phoenix and people on the stamp were both unearthed at the Niuheliang site in northeast China's Liaoning Province.
