    I received a few unexpected presents from my 80+ year old grandma today. She loves collecting jadeite (and has some pieces from the 60s and 70s), but I am embarrassed to admit that I still know very little about jadeite. She said that this is Burma jadeite, but that's all I know. I don't think these are particularly valuable pieces (except for sentimental value).

    Red jadeite bangle and pendant

    My grandma said the red is "Fei" and the green is "Cui", hence "Fei Cui". :read: :read: I am such a newbie to jade!! All of this is very interesting.. all I know is that it's quite pretty :razz:

    Hi soberguy, your pics are OK if you're using a browser. There seems to be a problem loading pics if you use the Tapatalk app, though (not just your pics but any pics uploaded through Tapatalk)..

    Nice beaded necklace though, love the translucency of the green one!! Beautiful!

    Dynasty,
    Your new Jadeite pieces are beautiful. I never realized that black Jade can be so pretty on hand.

    I love this pendant. It looks like it has some translucence?

    Thank you

    I never think will be so in love with black jadeite, so much fun to mix and match with any color of jadeite pendant or any gold jewelry.

    Hi everyone. I wanted to post my newest Jade item, a 60mm Emerald Fleck bangle from Allan Spehar. The bangle is very comfortable and it does not have any scratches, chips, or cracks and the polish is excellent. I have included the vendor's photos and my own. icm_fullxfull_40.jpg img_4558.jpg img_2905.jpg

    Hmm, Washington State Jade. Is it as strong as jadeite jade? It is a unique looking bracelet. :))

    Hi, Thanks! It is unique and much prettier in person.
    Jadeite is harder but brittle (Crack easily), Nephrite easier to scratch but it is tougher and stronger.

    This is my first post on this site so "Hello" to everyone reading this post.
    This morning I was browing a Chinese Jadeite forum site then a thought caught me. How other people think of jade apart from asian? So I found this site using a search engine and here I am reading this wonderful post.

    About 15 years ago, when jade was not so expensive, my family got 2 pendants from a friend as gifts and one is a Budda guanyinthe other smiling Budda.

    About 1 month ago I bought myself a really beautiful pendant and as a compensation, my wife a jade leaf :)

    I think it looked nice on you, but a round one would look nicer :rodent:

    I love the icy Buddha!

    I don't think I've shared my jadeite on this thread before. (I checked, and couldn't find it.) It's untreated (type A), with a size of 11.6 x 7.9 mm, 3.23 carats.
