THE JADE (Nephrite) ROUGH PAGE

"Nephrite is a fibrous aggregate variety of tremolite-actinolite, a basic calcium magnesium iron silicate,
whereas jadeite is a pyroxene mineral. Nephrite is more common than jadeite and although it is slightly softer
than jadeite, it is considered tougher due to its denser structure. Traditional Chinese jade typically refers to
nephrite since there are no actual jadeite deposits located in China. Today, green nephrite is considered to be
the most valuable nephrite, but translucent, white nephrite was considered the most valuable up until the
introduction of fine Burmese 'imperial'jadeite jade during the 18th century."

We have real fine Wyoming & California Jade (Nephrite) from a couple
older than me stock collector collections of lapidary rough. Shown wet.
