Hi all you gemologists!
I’ve been buying a couple stones that I have no idea what they
really are - specifically, plum jade and peachy jade. They are
chocolate brown with a lavender tone and warm pink with some
semi-white/light green mottling. They are both rather hard (can’s
scratch with a knife and sounds like jade when you klink them
together.) My Chinese supplier says they are the names
aforementioned. However, knowing the willy nilly use of the term
"jade" I’m hard pressed to believe it. Do any of you have any
knowledge of these stones’ real names? You can find photos of them
under “jade” on my web site.
