Previously, when most people referred to jade, it meant either pure nephrite or pure jadeite, but nowadays, there are many different closely related minerals referred to and traded as jade such as maw-sit-sit and jade-albite for example. One of the lesser known varieties has been made an officially distinct jade specimen and is referred to as omphacite jade.

Great selection. Love the many learning features like articles and gem information. Prices competitive for natural stones. I do miss not having a selection of lab-made stones, CZ’s, etc, which are useful when price and cost are factors.
As Always never disappointed in any gemstone I purchase from this site. I have never had a problem. Thank-You Gemselect for offering such a comprehensive variety . I will continue to order from this site.
