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.

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 colors.  Nephrite is found in few colours black, green and creamy white, while jadeite can have the full range of jade’s colours.
