This is green jade from Wyoming, I bought a large chunk and then sawed it, shaped it and polished it into this pretty oval. It’s a nice pure green with some white mineral inclusions towards the bottom of the piece.
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″ long.
