Or maybe a pure green or lavender verstion 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. Typical jade colors are white grey pale green moss spinach black brown and yellow and combinations of these.

The mutton fat version is nephrite jade measuring from 5.5 to 6.5 on Moh's scale for hardness diamond has 10. 
  • Naturally people ask how much is a piece of jade worth? 
The answer is quite difficult because there are countless manipulations people are doing with jade-stones to make more money. Probably the worst is Thailand and China were they sell you treated marble as "white jade" and they dump light jade into acid for bleaching since the more translucence a raw piece of jade has the higher the price. In Thailand the fakes are everywhere they do the same with ruby and sapphire plus other precious stones. The idea is always the same make the gemstone look more valuable by cheating the buyer.

High end Myanmar jade is mined around Hapakant in northern Kachin State Myanmar. The nearest airport is at Myitkyina which also is the capital city of Kachin State located 1500 kilometers north of Yangon and about 790 kilometers north of Mandalay.

There are many places they mine for nephrite jade which is the original "Chinese Jade" e.g. currently the biggest exporter is B.C. in Canada but the Canadian jade is actually nephrite and not jadeite which is the high end version with the most intense and vibrant colors and almost as hard as a diamond.

  • What is the most expensive color of jade?
Jadeite Jade of Myanmar / Burma is the highest valued stone and of this version the most expensive color is clean evenly distributed intense green without impurities and as transparent as possible. Most expensive jade color is imperial jade. This somehow answers another question which is 


The answer is its clean and transparent green without any veins. Although jadeite jade is available with almost every color most come from Myanmar / Burma and are in the green/white spectrum.

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 20 ton.

  • Jade / Jadeite stone prices.


Another very pretty version of a precious jade stone is paired with silver prices are very volatile there e.g. are pretty bangles in the internet or ay the Bogyoke Market in Yangon (among other) with white and green vein for $ 20,- and at the next shop other can be bought for 2000,- but with clearer white and green and more translucency. Which actually mean buying jade has a high individual amount  of the like do you reall like this particular jade item or not.

  • How to identify a jade rock.
If you are not a specialist it is very difficult to identify genuine jade. A good start would be to take a flashlight with you preferable in the UV spectrum and hold the lamp in a way to have the light shine through the stone which can be done off the center of the stone if the light shines through focused its jade if it wont shine through lighting up the whole jade chunk with a shimmer and no focused it's not jade. See the boulder below how it looks like when it is rough natural jade.

Even the experienced eye can be fooled when evaluation the jade stone. When purchasing any higher priced piece of jewelry and other has it tested by a lab of your choice, don’t let them bring you somewhere.  It should be tested for authenticity which means is it the real stuff or another is it jade and natural and not treated such as bleached.

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.

The jade stone in Chinese "Yu" always had a mythical often even sacred meaning and has some medical properties. To use the mineral for that purpose they ground it to get a powder like material. In ancient times it was blended with water and it developed a positive effect on any illness with the kidneys it is also widely believed to increases energy and prolongs life.

Superstitions are surrounding the gem in general people think it gives balance to  the  spiritual properties of the body.

Rough jade is difficult to handle because you never know what's inside unless cutting the stone. Jadeite jade is a very dense mineral, only slightly less hard than diamonds and other precious stones. The ideal material for great jewelry, precious artwork and body decoration. Raw jade stones with attractive colors.

The multicolored rough jade 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 watch the pictures they tell more.


Beside 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. 

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 jadeite jade they are mostly made from marble. But in a tricky way so it appears very similar.

Since the US refuses to sell the heavy equipment to carry the stones they turned totally to China for the huge loader and other equipment. 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.

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. 

carved jadeite pendants
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. 

  • 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.
Imperial Jade Pendant sold in Yangon
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 (right) they sold it in the Bogyoke Market in Yangon 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.
