A hand sized chunk of Burmese Jadeite rough stone. This is dark forest green material, almost black jadeite. Not as translucent as lighter coloured stone, it takes a high polish and is in demand as a jewellery making material. This piece could also be made into a carving. It is uncommon to get such quality jadeite for sale in Australia. Imagine all the beautiful items you could make with this high grade lapidary rock. Some photos taken wet or backlit to try and show the deep green colour.
