Toughest Natural Stone in the World
The toughness of Nephrite Jade is remarkable. It has a strength greater than steel and was put to work by many early civilizations for axes, knives and weapons. It was later that jade became a symbolic stone used in ornaments and other religious artifacts during the eons.
Today jade is still valued for its beauty. Its many colours are appreciated, but its the emerald green colour that jadeite produces so well, that is highly sought after by artwork collectors. This emerald green jade called “Imperial Jade” is coloured by chromium. Other colours are influenced by iron (green and brown) and manganese is thought to produce the violet colours. Nephrite is found in few colours black, green and creamy white, while jadeite can have the full range of jade’s colours.
