Subject:I need help with jadeite coloration
Posted By: Pavel Sun, Jan 06, 2019 IP: 91.122.15.30

I understand that this is the art oriented forum, but it is safe to assume that you can't love Chinese culture and do not love jades.

So, it is easy to put a price tag on imperial green jadeite but what about more humble colors?
Where i can research what colors are more popular?
Links on massive jade shops with adequate pricing are also welcomed.

I am asking that because quite recently i came in possession of an unusual jadeite boulder and after i made some pendants from it i was left high and dry in terms of what to do next.

Here are the examples and any opinion about them would be gratefully accepted.
Do not tell this is not jadeite thou. All necessary tests were professionally conducted and the only next step available is to receive a lab certificate on them. I am considering that, but, certificates are expensive (in fact, to get one for jadeite piece you have to pay as for two diamonds)and therefore, i do not want to invest any money if those are just "fun" colors

Hi I am unsure of what it is you are seeking answers to?
If you are asking about value and or appraisal and whether this item you have is worth the time and trouble to obtain a certificate then my answer is no it is not worth the hassle etc.
Regards
Mark

Never mind what you claim, the second picture shows that it is not any type of Jade.

Brown with milky veins is typical for jadeite. Inclusions in the middle ARE unusual but not impossible.

Were i am welcoming your denial as any other honest opinion, the question was more about "are those unusual enough to be collectible".

"Shall i get a lab certificate" question is solely depends on potential value of this uncommon, opal like scenery in a piece of jadeite.
