“Jade is a name for two minerals with similar toughness and appearances. Jadeite is the more highly prized harder mineral, while Nephrite is more prolific and is softer. Jadeite is a sodium aluminum silicate with diopside while nephrite is magnesium, calcium silicate with the presence of iron. Nephrite is composed of interlocking fibrous crystals, while Jadeite is composed of granular crystals.”
