    Jadeite cylinder stone on 18k platinum ring. A modern piece from my wife's collection. I can't find a better word to describe the color of the stone but emerald. If anyone knows the formal name of this color, please put it in your comments. There is a small flaw in the pic marked by red square.

      Thank you so much shrine to share this beautiful piece of jadeite!
      Could lost myself for hours in the contemplation of this color... I will have to research a site where I saw names for different colors.
      Ha! I admire too the way you mixed vegetal and wood on your 2nd pic, this is art!

      This looks to be Imperial jadeite of the best kind, assuming that it's unbleached and undyed. Regardless, it is a beautiful gemstone,
    9. shrine shrine, 8 years ago
      Hi Debbie, you raised a good question. While the jadeite treatment techniques advanced a lot in last few decades, they still can't make a green spot in the mid of translucent stone without dyeing surrounding area. Take this one as an example.
    10. DebbieK DebbieK, 8 years ago

      The color is called Imperial jadeite. Dyed jadeite can be really tough to detect; the bleaching is easy to see under a microscope especially if it's dyed afterwards, but dye alone usually requires a spectroscopic examination to determine if the jadeite has been altered.

      Yours looks really good; it has the transparency of the really high end Imperial jadeite. If it was bleached it would have more than likely lost it's transparency. The dye doesn't affect the transparency as much. I have a carved Imperial jadeite Buddha which was selectively dyed; part of it is untampered with, the other part shows dye under a spectroscope. I guess that they thought the green in that part wasn't intense enough so they dyed it to match the good part.

      The sad part is that so many gemstones are treated in one way or another. The only way that consumers can be sure that they're getting what they paid for is to send them off to labs which gets really expensive.

      Yours is a beautiful piece of jewelry; I love jade of all kinds. I guess you figured out that I'm a little bit of a gem geek. I was fortunate in getting a lot of jadeite that had been popped out of pawn shop jewelry and I've learned a bunch from examining it and others that are known to be treated and untreated. It's a pleasure to see such a nice piece and know that someone else likes it as much as I do.
