Jade is a name that is given to two physically similar minerals: nephrite and jadeite. Though very different in composition, the two share a waxy to silky luster, vibrant green or creamy color, and identical cultural significance. Specimens can be found across every continent except Antarctica, where explorative and commercial mining is banned, as well as on several Pacific islands. Nephrite is a type of pyroxene with a heavy aluminum content while jadeite is an amphibole.
