JADE (JADEITE)

Cut but unpolished waterworn jadeite
cobble from Myanmar (Burma)

 
Jade is the common name for a fine-grained rock which has been used for carving and as a gemstone for thousands of years. It is made up of interlocking crystals which make it a very tough rock. The name jade has actually been given to two different rocks: jadeite and nephrite. 
 
Jadeite is rarer and occurs in a wide range of colours, the most highly prized being the emerald green variety known as imperial jade. Jadeite is found around the world but the most important source is Myanmar (Burma). It is often found as waterworn boulders which have developed a brown skin, due to weathering.  Nephrite jade is more common, ranging from dark green to cream-coloured, the most famous source being New Zealand.
