Jade is type of silicate and is formed of either jadeite or nephrite.

These are two distinct materials but look the same and have the same uses.

Nephrite, which is dark green and takes a very smooth polish, was then somewhat forgotten as jadeite became the forefront. Today, both these variants are sold under the name of jade.

Jade
A Chinese saying states that ‘you can put a price on gold, but jade is priceless’. Jade has indeed a special significance in China and today the market is led by China’s economic growth. The demand for quality jade has been soaring since the turn of the century, with prices rising tenfold in the first decade.

Overall, high quality jade may be compared to certain rare colour diamonds, with prices per carat far above ruby or sapphire. Some exceptional pieces, with unique provenances, have fetched incredible prices, such as the green nephrite seal of the eighteenth-century Chinese Qianlong Emperor, which sold for $15.7M at Sotheby’s Hong Kong in 2010, or Barbara Hutton’s legendary imperial green jadeite necklace mounted by Cartier

Jade can be briefly cleaned in ultrasonic cleaners and steam cleaners. But jade might be treated by dyeing, bleaching and impregnation, coatings, or heat treatment, so warm, soapy water is always a safe choice.
