    Hi, Anthony!

    What is "Xiuyan Jade"?…

    In some sources it says that it is a "type of nephrite [that] comes from Xiuyan city in LiaoNing Province in northeastern China", but other sources say it is Serpantine…

    Thank you,


    • Hi Polina, The little carvings in the photo, could be fake as out of curiosity we ordered some off ebay for under $5 and they were fake. Carving can take a long time, so rule of thumb is if it is super cheap carving – beware!

      All the Xiuyan Jade I found in google images was not Nephrite, looked more like “Jadeite – Jade”

    I wear nephritejade from big sur California and I must say the fact that my piece was gathered from the ocean floor on the Pacific coast I can feel the energy of the ocean and it's purifying effects. It is calming yet powerful. Soothing to the touch and the overall energy of the western Pacific Ocean it's rocky coast line and sea kelp forest. Definitely, underrated and overlooked in the family of jade.
