Eurojade - Le Spécialiste du Jade - The Jade Specialist


Nephrite jade from Switzerland (Poschiavo region) is rarely seen in the market and is very different from Canadian nephrite. Its colour is clear, never "spinach" green, which makes it visually similar to jadeite jade. But its chemical composition, a silicate of calcium and magnesium, shows it is nephrite and not jadeite (a silicate of sodium and aluminium).
