This Wyoming jade is dark olive green, and almost opaque, and when held to a light you see a the green translucence on the edges start to glow. I bought a large chunk and then sawed it, shaped it and polished it in my studio. It is a solid color on one side and the other has white inclusions.
This necklace is delicate and strong and I hammered a glittering silver accent, drilled the stone and made a tiny silver rivet to hold it onto an 18″ silver chain.
The jade is approximately 1 1/4″ long.
