Jade has been known and treasured for more than 7,000 years. But only in 1863 was it discovered that jade is actually not a single mineral. What was traditionally called jade is in fact two separate and distinct minerals: jadeite and nephrite.
Nephrite is the more common form of jade. Nephrite ranges in color from mid to dark green or grey-green, but it can also be white, yellowish or reddish. Nephrite is slightly softer than jadeite; nephrite is 6-6.5 on the Mohs scale, while jadeite is 6.5-7. They have quite different chemical compositions as well: nephrite is a calcium magnesium iron silicate while jadeite is a sodium aluminum silicate. The two minerals also have different densities. Jadeite has a density of 3.30-3.38 while nephrite is less dense at 2.90-3.03.
I recommend this site for anyone looking for loose gems! They were delivered right on time, packaged very carefully. Every gem was exactly what I ordered. Even more beautiful than the photos I viewed. Which are pictures of the actual gem you are buying. Thank you so much Gem Select! I will be buying from them in the future for sure!
I received the product in a very well packaged parcel with complete detail of what I ordered. I opened the envelope, then the bag and then the bubble wrap and then the item containing the stone. I was so delighted at the color, the cut , the clean clarity and the sparkle of my Ametrine, love at first sight. Cant wait to get it set into a ring with some Citrine and Amethyst. Thanks so much
I have purchased from many sites in Thailand and to date GemSelect has been the best. Prices are fair and shipping is quick. Quality is as described and website is easy to navigate. I would recommend this company to others and plan on returning in the future if prices stay competitive and service stays consistent.
