Natural jade, a stone with a viscous fibrous structure. Green (more often) from milk to marsh, it is brown. The more uniform the color, the higher the value.
What attracted me to Myanmar Nephritis:
– Natural green – different shades and degree of transparency
– Shape of beads. At first glance it seems that they are round. Just round, but not – look carefully – the way beads are cut, most likely mechanized-hand, which does not allow to achieve the perfect shape of the ball, but rather they look like peas in shape. Circles yes not quite.
And, interestingly, the Myanmarians are risking the life of believing that the talisman of jade gives safety to the wearer.
