A good question is "what color is jade" since it comes in many, such as green, white, lavender, black, red, purple and many blends. Other colors come with different mixtures and amounts of the above indicated, check the shop.  

Actually, some Chinese connoisseurs identify jade with about 120 gemstone colors most bangles and pendants have a rich spectrum.

The most popular are green with plenty of variants and combinations with other colors. For jewelry usually is a kind of green lavender white and in between white is popular for sculptures of Buddha. Landscapes plus animals such as horses elephant chicken and other are used as decoration.

When buying anything consult a proven expert since there is hardly any other material which is so shameless manipulated e.g. it is very common that the sell white marble as jade. When telling it's a fake they insist no it's market conform the worst liars are in Thailand, they fake copy and manipulate anything. In general, never buy anything in Thailand besides of some clothing since all is made very sloppy and with cheating in mind.

the ultimate jade color is green as shown in the bangles

Here are some green color bangles with a pretty luster surface and a uniform color, this kind is also called imperial jade. Actually, for top notch, it should be a bit more transparent but that versions are hard to find, but the prices here are still around $ 2000,- - 3000,-. Jadeite is quite valuable. But have it tested before you hand over money there are far too many fakes around. This is especially anywhere in the east.

First, it needs to understand that there two versions, one is jadeite (high end) and the other is nephrite which is commonly known as "Chinese Jade" which has a very limited spectrum. All top notch jewelry today is made from jadeite which has a whole dimension more hues available, a better texture and many other advanced features. Whatever people think about jadeite is best.

I would say after doing some research, especially at the Bogyoke Market in Yangon, Myanmar almost all variants of the rainbow spectrum can be found but currently (2017) most sought after is jade with the green color that includes jadeite.
