I know there are many jade collectors on the forum and I would like your opinion. I know the bottle is not "old" based on the hollowing, which is minimal. I'm almost 100% confident that it is jade based on the assessment of a jeweler and 2 appraisers who briefly reviewed the bottle in person. What I don't know is whether it is jadeite or nephrite. Two out of 3 felt it was certainly spinach green nephrite. Based on the research I've done, I agree. But I'm completely new at this so my opinion does not count for much. If you agree that it is nephrite, do you think it is high quality jade. If you do not believe it is jade please explain why so that I can know what to look for. I have 18 pictures in total, so I will post the first 3 then the next and more if requested.
