[Source] Rough imperial jadeite


#1

Can anyone direct me to a source for a piece of rough imperial green
jadeite? We need a piece at least 2 inches square and 5-6mm thick
that would be cut up for a project we are making. Please send me an
off list message if you can help with this.

If such a piece existed, it would cost you more than the national
budget of some small countries. You might as well ask for a 200 ct.
piece of D flawless diamond rough. Imperial jade is more precions
than fine emerald.

You’ve got a snowball’s chance.

It takes years of interactions in the jade marketplace to have
access to what you seek. Those who have access are not going to sell
rough. Turning rough into finished is where the money is made.
