We have summed up five easy ways to help identify. You can use these to identify jade when you are making your next big purchase. Or (shop on https://www.baikalla.com/collections/jade-jewelry, where they only sell 100% genuine jade jewelry)
1: Feel dense to the hand.
Jadeite and nephrite jade are both dense to the hand. If you pick one up and it seems light. It might be a simulant like dyed glass or some random stone that looks like jade.
2:The color will seem natural.
This is a hard one, it sometimes takes a trained eye to tell the difference. But you can also do it. The color should rarely be bright green. If you see that, the piece is likely to be fake or treated. Unless it’s got a heafty price tag on it. Because the jade with a really vibrant colors will cost you.
3:Examine the texture.
You should notice some color variations throughout the stone if the jade is real. On the other hand, fake jade may have perfect coloration or could have uneven consistency, meaning that it looks blotchy in spots.
4: COLD TO THE TOUCH
The bracelet should feel cold to the touch. Unless it’s been sitting in a warm & bright jewelry case all day.
