These round nephrite jade cabochons have an attractive olive-green color and subtle veining. Use the cabochon to create a bold pendant, pair it with complementary colour cabs to create matched sets with earrings or bracelets, or use it to create more complex multi-stone designs.
Nephrite jade is an aggregate of interlocked fibrous amphibole crystals. Because it is tough and fine-grained, this type of jade is suitable for carving. Jade has a history that traces back to prehistoric times, to the ancient Chinese, the Maori, and to the Aztecs and Inca peoples of Central America. Gemstones are but one of the many uses these people had for this material. Reputed by folklore to attract love, this stone was also believed to deliver prosperity and power to those who wore or carried it.
