Jade Jewelry

Did you know that two different gem materials can correctly be called jade? The gemstone jade is a generic term for both jadeite and nephrite. Both stones are made up of tiny interlocking mineral crystals. Jadeite comes in a wide variety of shades of green, yellow, reddish orange, lavender, white, grey, black, and brown. The coloration is often streaked or mottled, giving jadeite gemstones a unique visual texture. This allows jewelers and carvers to create imaginative and intriguing designs with the gemstone. Similarly, nephrite is usually streaked or mottled; however, colors are more muted than jadeite. Colors range from translucent to opaque and include light to dark green, yellow, brown, black, gray, or white. Most people associate jade gemstones with the color green—this is because green jade is the most common. Green jade is considered to be a “dream stone,” releasing negative thoughts and irritability while soothing the mind. Each shade of jade has different meanings and properties.
