I cut and polished this piece of jade very thin so that you can see the translucence when you hold it to the light. It has both light green and yellow green areas on the stone.
I cut and polished it to be flat so that you can admire both sides. Then I drilled a tiny hole and made a small silver rivet to attach a handmade hammered necklace attachment. It hangs on a 18″ silver cable chain and the stone is approximately 1 1/8″ x 1/2″.
Nephrite jade is found in the center of Wyoming and is the official state gemstone, the Wyoming variety is mostly green and often has mineral inclusions that create dots and other patterns in different greens, whites, and grey.
