Raw / Rough Natural Jade for saleThe real business with the gemstones in Burma started in the eighteenth century. It seems the volume imports into China’s Yunnan province started at that time. Jadeite is pyroxene a rock-forming inosilicate minerals which measures around 7 on Moll's scale for hardness. The physical parameters are for sure better compared to nephrite which is commonly defined as "Chinese Jade".
The pictures show some example to identify the color and quality, this stones are available as rocks, pebbles and bolder try here for much more raw jade and other stones.
Or maybe a pure white green or lavender striation the nephrite version has much less vivid colors and is not as hard. The colors come from the presence of manganese, iron, chromite and traces of other minerals. Colors are white, grey, pale green, moss, spinach, black, brown and yellow and combinations of these.
Mutton fat' jadeThe mutton fat version is nephrite jade, measuring from 5.5 to 6.5 on Moh's scale for hardness, diamond has 10. Jadeite is found in Kachin state and some places in Sagaing division of Myanmar / Burma. The material comes in all sizes up to big boulders of about 2 ton.
For inquiry pls. use email above.

A good labor will take a tiny bit into the spectroscopic scanning and X-ray diffraction analysis. They will compare the example with the structure of 2 genuine samples. The specific gravity of the mineral can also be determined, which indicates whether the piece is genuine or not. Smaller purchases are usually tested with torch light and lots of experience as can be seen at the picture.

Superstitions are surrounding the gem and butterflies symbolize love on her wedding day and healers use the gem to relieve grief and to improve sleep. In general people think it gives balance to physics and spiritual properties of the body.
White and lavender boulder

The multicolored rocks are pretty to watch here the rich spectrum is visible which has been building up when trace elements and gasses penetrated the stones under immense pressures when they were formed in the earth, see the pictures they tell more.
Pictures of raw jadeite jadeBeside of the industrialized mining with heavy equipment, people are searching around in the mine district at Hpakant in Myanmar's Kachin State.
Some got amazingly rich when they found the "right" piece of jade stone. But rather less in recent times since this becomes the property of local Chinese and other from across the border.
Some more jadeite pictures
It's amazing what beautiful colors stones can have they are created in the minerals when trace elements penetrate the material during the build up.
With jade, it is difficult to find bigger pieces with a homogeneous color and texture that makes them very expensive when they still are found.
All this is natural jade but not always, it needs to be vigilant. E.g. almost all bigger white objects / sculptures etc. are not white jadeite jade they are mostly made from marble. But in a tricky way so it appears very similar.
It needs to be careful because where a lot of money can be made the cheat is not far away in this case sometimes via bleaching the stones.
One of the rather strange carvings they make from solid jade stones is oval ones Chinese people hold in the hand when they have to make an important decision it must be genuine or “Zhen-yu'”. This metamorphic rock was formed by heat and pressure and there are actually two types.
Most people don’t know that there are two versions the one is Nephrite also known as “Chinese Jade” which is actually hydrated silicate of calcium, magnesium, and iron with a hardness of 6.5 on Moh’s scale and has fewer colors then Jadeite which is stronger, rarer and has a better texture too.
Here are some jadeite images.
This culminates in higher value and prices just get some imagination via the images included here and the other pages. The hardness parameter is 7, for comparison, steel has 6.5 and diamond has 10.
Over thousands of years, Chinese People interpreted all kind of attributes into the mineral which includes different idea to the color variants such as orange bring inner peace and green has some healing properties and black brings help at negative situations.
This is leading to the situation that Chinese men are buying black pendants and rings to ward off negative influences and these pretty little jewelry are often easily reaching a couple thousand dollars.
Usually, the pendants are decorated by fitting carving.
It is also the birthstone for March and for Chinese this is the “Stone of Heaven” by any means, actually, they are well known to be very suspicious. Here are plenty of photos to give you a better understanding, just look at the magnificent colors.
The mineral has a mysterious character which was build up for a long time and today this is used by the sales men in the shops to pull the money of the customers and amazingly they like it when they get stripped of their earned cash. Just watch this imperial green jade pendant they sold it in the Bogyoke Market in Yangon for $ 17.000,- in 2015 and since then prices went up again for about 30% it's incredible.
Actually, the Chinese Ladies are on the forefront of the follower of jade fashion. Legends surround this green stone such as immortality and since this, it also had a touch of macho during certain time periods they sent out naked virgins to collect “river jade” long time ago and not long ago some items were sold at Christie's Hong Kong for multiple millions.
Newly rich Chinese collectors are buying the old treasures that once have been stolen from their country, mainly British stole immense quantities and values for the crown similar as they did in Myanmar (Burma) with rubies and teak.
Old carvings are hoarded and investors speculate to a make a “golden cut” just watch this pretty pictures.
Visiting any jade shop in Singapore or KL every clerk tells buy now prices rise dramatically buy there are still whole mountains in Hpakant in Myanmar bearing enough jadeite for the next few hundreds of years. Actually, they found more nephrite in recent years in Canada and Australia than the Chinese ever mined in the last 6000 years there is still enough buried in mother earth.
