Caption: Jade is a family consisting of two distinct minerals, jadeite and nephrite. Jadeite is far more valuable than nephrite, and its colors are generally brighter and more vivid. The finest jadeite occurs in Myanmar (Burma), which is the only known source for a rich green jadeite color known as 'Imperial jade'. Jade is tough and can be fashioned with intricate detail, such as in this delicate 1-inch carving.
