For millennia, the Chinese have regarded jade as the most precious of all earthly objects.
In the 18th century, with the new availability of jadeite, green became the most coveted color of all, and that is still the case.
However, all the many colors of jade retain their own popularity. Lavender jade continues to be admired and adored. The value and desire for red jade, yellow jade, black jade, and especially ice jade continue to increase.
