The Name Jade
Jade is a name that was applied to ornamental stones that were being brought to Europe from China and Central America. It wasn’t until 1863 that it was realized that Jade was being applied to two different minerals. The two minerals are both exquisite for the purposes that jade is put to task and are hard to distinguish from each other. Now both are called Jade.
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. The 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 jades colours.
