Quality Statement

Our nephrite was evaluated by the Chinese government, and they found the Wyoming jade easy to carve into works of art. One of the great qualities of this jade is that the sheen from its carvings is a result of polishing, and not waxing. The certificate below was issued to us by the Chinese government proving our nephrite's quality.

About Jade

Jade is the gem name for mineral aggregates composed of either or a combination of two minerals; jadeite and nephrite. Jade is one of the toughest minerals known because of the intertwined nature of individual crystals. Wyoming nephrite is characterized by very dense interlocking of fibers, rendering it free of cracks and impurities. Its colors range from light apple green to the darker shades of spinach and black.
