Hi, I’m trying to locate some lavender jade that is either 5x7mm
or 6x8mm in size. Any recommendations for places to contact
for this? Thanks for the help!

I purchased beads, spheres and cabachons this year at Tucson and
Quartzsite, the sellers in Tucson were from overseas and told me they
would not do mail order, I wish they would, I could use more at this
point. The seller in Quartzsite did not have a business card and I
don’t know where he is from, I also bought some rough that I am
planning on cutting in the future.

Like you I would also like to know a supplier.

Thanks
Laura

as I am reading all these posts, I feel a need to remind you of the
difference between “lavendar jade” = jadeite, from Burma,
translucent, expensive and purple jade = a fairly small percentage of
jade with a lot of quartzite, from Turkey, inexpensive.

Their has been a lot of this available lately, but please do not
mistake this for the true lavendar jade.

thanks for the opportunity to share with some really good people
