“A” Jade (Natural Jadeite)
Refers to natural jadeite which is not subject to any form of chemical treatment, alternation or enhancement, except those traditional processes such as plum juice washing and wax polishing. These procedures are internationally recognised as standard practice and are not defined as “treatment” because the structure of the jade has not been damaged.
“B” Jade (Chemically bleached and polymer impregnated Jadeite)
Refers to jadeite which has been chemically bleached to remove the impurities. It is further rinsed with caustic soda and followed by impregnation of polymer to enhance its translucency. The structure of jade is damaged through this treatment and it will lose its lustre once the polymer deteriorates, and will turn yellow in colour with the lapse of time. In addition, “B” jade cannot withstand heat and pressure.
“C” Jade (Dyed coloured Jadeite)
Refers to jadeite which has been chemically treated with additional pigment substance, known as dyed coloured jadeite
“B+C” Jade (Dye coloured and polymer impregnated Jadeite)
Refers to “B” Jadeite which has been dyed to enhance its translucency and brightness during the polymer impregnation process. Jade Testing and Identification
Care for Jade
Proper care is required to maintain the jade lustre, which last you for many years to come. It is advisable to remove your jade jewellery, before any harsh physical activities to minimise scratches or impact on the stone. Avoid spraying perfume directly on the jade jewellery, as the chemical may cause it to turn colour as well. For cleaning of jade, simply use soapy water and a soft cloth to dry it.
