Asian Hand Held Mirror with Jadeite Handle.
Asian Hand Held Mirror with Jadeite Handle Comes with Original Box.
Jadeite and nephrite are totally different minerals. They have different densities, different hardness, different crystal structure, and different chemical compositions. Classic jade, the jade that comes from China, is nephrite, and jadeite, the rarer type of jade, comes from Burma. The most valuable type of jade is a type of jadeite known as imperial jade that takes on a yellowish tone and contains chromium. Most nephrite, on the other hand, is quite affordable and doesn't have that added composition.
