Subject:Is This 'Mutton Fat' Jade?
Posted By: Daniela Mon, Jan 08, 2018 IP:

I would like to know if a bracelet that I purchased is in fact white HETIAN jade, but more specifically, is it 'Mutton Fat' jade (I was told it was)?

I would appreciate it if someone could tell me for sure. Thank you.

From the picture , I would say that is Jadeite. A specific gravity test would tell which one it is.
Otherwise, a sharper picture, and telling us if the color of the item matches the one in the picture.

Mutton fat jade is so named for the resemblance of its yellowish white color to that of mutton fat. Your bangle appears to a light green instead.
