Now for Canadian Jade produced in the Arctic Circle, it is the most important Jasper since its texture is the best to compare with Manas jasper, Russia, jasper, jasper, Taiwan jasper, or New Zealand jasper.
Canadian Jade has many reserves and extraction places but the best jasper reserves and extraction is where easy exploitation of Canadian Jade is almost depleted. The rest of the exploitation of the environment began even worse and made it much more difficult to mine for ore.
Due to a sharp rise in mining costs there was a drastic reduced supply and increased demand so the price of jade shot straight up. In Canada, for five years now, from the year 2005 to 2010 has increased the price of jade by 3-4 times the original price and is expected in the near future to rise more rapidly.
Jades: HeTian White Jade, Qinghai White Jade and Russian White Jade
HeTian White Jade is a world famous soft jade with fine texture, rich cultural connotations, and a long history. It has a unique charm and renowned reputation of "Chinese Jade". When Tian Baiyu is put under a special light source, its polished surface can be rendered easily. In fact, it has the staggered structure at the internal part which is an important identification for HeTian white jade.
Qinghai White Jade and Russian White Jade on the market has been in the market for more than a decade of history due to its physicochemical properties and internal structure point of view. These two jades in full view have the physical and chemical indicators of nephrite, and thus they are truly the real deal. However, due to the geological environment and many other factors, both products’ sensory effect are different with Tian Baiyu product. The sense of HeTian White Jade is smoother than them both and is one of the cardinal reasons for the high price of Tianbai Jade.
Qinghai White Jade is characterized by its better transparency to compare with HeTian White Jade. The end product of Qinghai White Jade has a bit of a translucent feel with some internal transparent white tendons. It’s very hard to distinguish by the hardness and the proportion of the Qinghai White Jade and HeTian White Jade since there isn’t much difference. But in general, the Qinghai White Jade pieces are very tedious to achieve the feeling of moisture by simply touching it and HeTian White Jade is rather rough. Qinghai White Jade is easier to alter color under light.
Russian White Jade is characterized by a vigorous texture and gives it a rugged feeling. If the Tian White Jade and Russian White Jade were placed together then the Tian White jade would be smoother and whiter. Jade experts believe that Russian White Jade in thallium is easier in chipping during curve detailing. In addition, another aspect of the distinction between these three products by gently tapping to hear the sound the rocks would create. HeTian White Jade issues a sound quite similar to a clear lead being tapped. As for the sounds that the QingHai White Jade and Russian White Jade make, it’s rather a monotone noise. In short, the differences between the HeTian White Jade compared to the Qinghai White Jade and Russian White Jade are much needed to be seen in the real deal to compare their extraordinary contrast while experiencing hands-on with our heart.
