A QUICK CHECK WITH A PRESIDUIM GEMSTONE TESTER WILL TELL YOU IN 3 SECONDS , ITS REAL JADE.DEFINITION OF NEPHRITE JADE::::a tough fibrous amphibole mineral: a variety of jade consisting of calcium magnesium silicate in monoclinic crystalline form. Formula: Ca 2 Mg 5 Si 8 O 22 (OH) . A green to blue variety of jade. Nephrite is an amphibole and is the least precious form of jade. Chemical formula: Ca 2 (Mg,Fe) 5 Si 8 O 22 (OH) 2. The term nephrite is used to distinguish a gemstone that is associated with jadeite as being part of the jade family. Actually they are two different stones with some distantly similar properties, but due to their similarities in color and use in carvings in China they have come to be related to each other if in name only. However, nephrite does have some properties that jadeite will not have. Particularly in rarity and durability Nephrite is a variety of the calcium and magnesium-rich amphibole mineral actinolite (aggregates of which also make up one form of asbestos). The chemical formula for nephrite is Ca2(Mg, Fe)5Si8O22(OH)2. It is one of two different mineral species called jade. The other mineral species known as jade is jadeite, which is a variety of pyroxene. While nephrite jade possess mainly grays and greens (and occasionally yellows, browns or whites), jadeite jade, which is rarer, can also contain blacks, reds, pinks and violets. Nephrite jade is an ornamental stone, used in carvings, beads, or cabochon cut gemstones. Nephrite can be found in a translucent white to very light yellow form which is known in China as mutton fat jade, in an opaque white to very light brown or gray which is known as chicken bone jade.
