I waited so long for finding a genuine lavender jade piece!
You encounter so much stained jade or glass so called lavender...
I went for it from the seller's description and pics, which showed an almost grey opaque hue on some and translucent lilac on others!
He said tests for natural jadeite on presidium gem tester.
Vintage, 69 jadeite beads 8mm, 14k spacers, 27" or 68.58cm, 62 grams, got it for 115$ :-)
My pics, taken without flash and out of direct sunlight gave what you see in pic#1.
Pic#2 is same as in person, I only lower the color balance on the editor. p
Pic#3 is to compare with a same size Cape amethyst beads necklace, but the real color are not showing :-/
Cape amethyst is more colorful, jadeite in person is more greyish.
Pic#4 is to show together an apple green jadeite necklace and the lavender one worn together, interior light!
