White mutton-fat jade is the most valuable of all Chinese jade available, and material from Hotan is considered the finest nephrite in the world. Hetian jade is almost 99% pure tremolite, and with nephrite, the more tremolite it contains, the more valuable it is. The finest quality jade from Hetian has a buttery luster and creamy color like no other jade on earth. Of the many varieties of Chinese jade, Hetian jade is considered to be one of the most valuable, and also happens to be the most well-known of jade varieties. Burmese jadeite is also extremely valuable, and white or creamy color jadeite is highly sought-after by collectors, especially throughout Asian countries.

This site always has beautiful stones to choose from and you will get the actual gem that is pictured. The shipping is fast and reasonably priced.
I love GemSelect, personally. I browse their site almost daily to see all the new stones available. Their selection is pretty amazing. The quality isn't always the highest and the cut of the stones isn't always perfect. But for the price, and if you look hard enough, you can find a real gem, so to speak.
I would recommend to a friend because of the quality of the products purchased. The gemstone quality is very high and the gems purchased are beautiful. Any friends interested in having custom jewelry made would definitely be recommended to the site. Also, every shipment is handled with care and I am very pleased with that.
