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 dates back 8,000 years with its first use in ancient China. The toughest natural stone due to its felted interlocking fibers.
Jadeite, jade's considerably younger counterpart is pyroxene with a more crystalline structure.
Canadian Nephrite Jade
Nephrite Jade comes in a variety of colors. Our stunning Nephrite Jade is mined along the coast range of British Columbia.
It is world renown for being the brightest, hardest, greenest Nephrite Jade ever found. The stunning green ranges from lighter apple green to rich emerald green to near black.
We grade our Nephrite Jade on its natural quality, not its type of treatment like Jadeite does.
Clarity describes the absence of inclusions and fractures in the jade. For grading purposes, the richer the color and depth of translucency, the finer the Jade.
Beware of the many green stones on the market being sold as Nephrite Jade; dyed quartz and serpentine are the most common.
Remember, Nephrite Jade is as individual as you!
