The ancient celadon that made in the period front Late Tang Dynasty to Southern Song Dynasty (900-1200 A.D.) were excavated in Yue kiln, Zhejiang province of China. This paper studied elemental constitute of Yue kiln glaze by synchrotron radiation X-ray fluorescence (SRXRF) with non-destructive analysis. The feasibility of non-destructive analysis method was also discussed. We analyzed ancient celadon samples of 6 cultural periods that produced from Yue kiln of Si Long Kou, the celadon of He Hua Xin kiln where is about 5 km to Si Long Kou kiln were used to contrast the provenance performance. The statistical analysis of elemental abundances indicated that most of celadon samples belong to their corresponding production age, which evidently reflects the Yue kiln characteristics. There was age correlation among the ancient celadon of special cultural period.
