A classic Eastern Beauty for its beautiful colour and great hardness, Jadeite or "Fei Cui" (in Chinese) is a pyroxene mineral belonging to the Jade group of minerals which is hard, unlike Nephrite, which is another type of Jade which is soft jade. Jadeite is formed in metamorphic rocks under high pressure and relatively low temperature conditions. It has a hardness of about 6.5 to 7.0 depending on its composition.
This is a beautiful 100% natural Jadeite Pendant which is white in colour with shades of green, known as moss in snow. It is considered icy type due to its translucency without any treatment. Thus, it is rated as Grade A Jadeite. This piece of jadeite was carefully carved into an auspicious Cabbage. The cabbage (bai cai 白菜 or qing cai 清菜) symbolizes wealth and prosperity because the second character "cai" (菜) has the same pronunciation as "cai" (财) which means money or wealth in chinese. In Chinese countries such as China and Hong Kong, businessmen like to place a cabbage ornament (commonly made of glass, crystal or jade) in their shops, restaurants, offices and homes which they strongly believe will attract wealth and prosperity.
This jadeite pendant is certified by renowned Guangzhou Mineral Resources Supervision and Testing Center of the Ministry of Land and Resources of the P.R.C. Appraisal Centre as a Grade A natural jadeite and we will provide buyer with the certificate. Because of its elegancy and beauty, it is also a very good choice for personal collection or a gift for love one. For physical healing purposes, Jadeite is believed to cure kidney stones if it is rubbed against the side of the afflicted person's body.
Due to human's aggressive mining of Jadeite and rising economies over the past decades, the price of the raw Jadeite rocks (known as Jadeitite) and polished jadeites have rose more than dozen times as the demand for it far exceeds its supply. Thus, it is a very good choice for investment, as it is strongly believed that the price of Jadeite will continue to rise, due to the depletion of Jadeite.
