Green Jade Gems
Jade is an umbrella term that encompasses a wide variety of gems, but the only pure forms of jade are jadeite and nephrite. Jadeite is the rarer of the two varieties of jade, and as a result it is more precious. The most valuable variety of jade is a striking, emerald-green jadeite known as "imperial jade".
Jade gemstones can range in color, including green, white, orange, yellow, lavender, grey and black. In many cases, jade gemstones occur with more than one color in a single gem. Jade gems with color that is evenly distributed is highly valued. However, color preferences vary depending on the region. For example, in the West, deep and vivid green jade is preferred, but in the Far East, pure white or yellow jade with a pink tone is prized, along with green 'imperial jade', which is found only in Burma.

GemSelect has a wonderful well described selection that surprises me how quickly it ships.
Working on a special anniversary gem collection for my wife, and was able to find almost everything on this one site. Having bought from yall before, this was a no-brainer on where to go for the right stones/buying experience.
