Jadeite - color, varieties

Jadeite occurs in a wide range of colors - from white, yellow, green, pink to purple, blue, red or black. The most popular variety of jadeite is green - this color is due to chromium impurities. In the past, jadeite was often confused with nephrite because of its similar appearance. It was not until 1863 that it was discovered that they were two different minerals, despite their very similar appearance.
