One of the greatest collections of its kind, the National Gem and Mineral Collection includes over 375,000 individual specimens, including several magnificent jade carvings and a stunning carved Jadeite Pendant.
Symbolizing nobility, perfection and immortality in Chinese culture, jade is a general name for two different minerals—jadeite and nephrite. Though nearly identical in appearance, jadeite and nephrite have distinctly different compositions. Rarer jadeite is usually a vivid green, but can also be lavender, red, orange, yellow, brown, white, black or gray. Nephrite ranges from creamy white to green to almost black.
