Yellow Jade

Yellow jade is the industry name for this natural serpentine. This stone features an array of shades from deep oranges to creamy off white tones. In China, jade was believed to preserve the body after death and is often found in the tombs of emperors from thousands of years ago. To ensure physical immortality, one tomb contained an entire suit fashioned of jade.
