Jade is an ornamental stone.
It was not until the 19th century that a French mineralogist determined that "jade" was in fact two different materials, nephrite and jadeite.
Nephrite can be found in a creamy white form as well as in a variety of green colors.
Jadeite shows more color variations, including blue, lavender-mauve, pink, and emerald-green colors.
Of the two, jadeite is rarer. Burma and Guatemala are the principal sources of modern gem jadeite, and Canada of modern lapidary nephrite.
WHITE is associated with light, goodness, innocence, purity, and virginity. It is considered to be the color of perfection.
