As early as 3000 B.C., jade was known in China as 'yu' meaning 'The Royal Gem' preserving its significance throughout the long history of Chinese art and culture, not unlike the impact of gold and diamonds in the West. The Chinese continue to regard jade as a symbol of 'the good, the beautiful and the precious' which embodies the Confucian virtues of wisdom, justice, compassion, modesty and courage. Jade is a fascinating gemstone with a great range of colors encompassing not only shades of green, but also nuances of white, gray, black, yellow, orange, and delicate violet tones. As a rule, its value is determined on the basis of color intensity, vivacity of texture, clarity, and transparency. In green jade alone, the connoisseurs differentiate between seven distinct qualities from the intense green color of 'imperial jade' through 'apple green' to shades of light green. In the USA and Europe 'emerald green' and 'apple green' are regarded as particularly valuable. In the Far East, on the other hand, pure white or a 'fine yellow with delicate pink undertone' is highly esteemed. In the world of jewelry, the fine violet nuances of 'lavender jade' are extremely popular. It is, however, the rare emerald green of 'imperial jade' with telltale translucent edges which remains the most highly prized variety of jade.
