What is Jade?
The term 'Jade' is commercially applied to 2 different metamorphic rocks, Nephrite and Jadeite. Nephrite, the original Jade is an amphibole. It is the toughest natural stone due to its felted interlocking fibers. Jadeite, Jade's considerably younger counterpart is a pyroxene with a more crystalline structure.
What to look for in Nephrite Jade
Nephrite Jade is an intriguing gemstone that comes in a variety of colors: white, browns, reds, blues and even black. The stunning green Nephrite Jade from British Columbia, Canada ranges from lighter apple green to a rich emerald green to a near black. For grading purposes the richer the color and depth of translucency the finer the Jade. Clarity, describes the absence of inclusions and fractures in the Jade. We grade our Jade on its natural quality, not its type of treatment like Jadeite does. There are many green stones on the market being sold as our Nephrite Jade that you have to be careful of when buying jade (dyed quartz and serpentine are the most common). When buying jade consider the above but most of all choose the Jade that is most appealing. Jade is as individual as you!
