GeoFossils« Lavender Jade Tumblestone (20-25mm) Single Stone
Lavender Jade is a variety of Jadeite, one of two distinctly different minerals that share the name Jade. Nephrite is a calcium magnesium silicate with a smooth surface polish and waxy sheen, usually in shades of white, mid- to deep olive green, brown and black. Jadeite is a sodium aluminum silicate, hard and lustrous, rarer than Nephrite, and usually more expensive. It occurs in various colors, including white-gray green, leafy green, blue or blue-green, emerald green, lavender or purple, pink, red, orange, greenish-black or black. Though they have different compositions, hardnesses, densities and crystal structures, both are exceptionally tough stones, similar in appearance, and equally valuable in metaphysical properties.
