  • Our Jadeite jade has been 100% certified and tested scientifically by either the GIA (Gemological Institute of America) or by the Guatemalan Mining Department. All our jade comes from Green Mines, meaning that we only use the jade that has naturally come up to the surface, not doing any underground mining that might change our beautiful mountainous landscape. They are the same mines used by our ancient Mayan civilization. Jadeite jade is characterized for its superior hardness and high quality gem compared to the other type of jade known as nephrite, usually commercialized in China and some Asian markets, Canada and New Zealand; reason why Jadeite jade is of higher preference for precious stone collectors.
