Real vs Treated Jade vs Fake Jade
Treated/ fake jade is not new news, it dates back to around 1980 when merchants started practicing the practice of treating jadeite to sell the low-quality jade for a better price. The main difference between natural and treated jade is that the jade has been bleached and sometimes colored. Which causes the jade to look more like the higher quality ones. We will get into the differences later.
