Item details

Taiwan Vintage Assorted Nephrite Jade CABOCHON unset Stones Loose Gem Stone 6.9g

The term jade is used for two different minerals, jadeite and nephrite. Only jadeite has value as a gem material in and of itself.
For jadeite, the intensity of the green color, combined with a high degree of translucency are the key factors in judging value.
Stones which are too dark in color or not so translucent are less highly valued.
Ideally, color should be completely even to the unaided eye, without spotting or veins.
Another important factor in evaluating quality. The best jadeite is semi-transparent... as is this item on this listing.
Next to certain rare colors of diamond (such as blue, pink and red), jadeite is the world‘s most expensive gem, with prices above even ruby and sapphire.
The record price for a single piece of jadeite jewelry was set at the November 1997 Christie’s Hong Kong sale:
Lot 1843, the “Doubly Fortunate” necklace of 27 approximately 15 mm jadeite beads, sold for US$9.3 million.
Indeed, out of the top ten most expensive jewels sold worldwide by Christie’s in 1999, five out of ten were jadeite, including three of the top four.
These auctions clearly show that jadeite is among the most valuable of all gemstones.
Jade is considered the “Stone of Heaven” and is thought to provide a bridge between this world and the next.
