This 21-inch long hand-knotted necklace is made of 8mm white "New Jade" (Serpentine), 6mm hexagonal pyramid Hematite, 4mm round & 5mm corrugated roundel sterling silver beads. It is finished with a sterling silver lobster-claw clasp.
What is New Jade?
Sometimes called Korean Jade, SooChow Jade, Serpentine Jade, Xiu Jade, Street Jade and probably several other names, this beautiful workable stone is really from the serpentine family of minerals. The serpentine group consists of four species with the same composition but different properties: antigorite, chrysotile, clinochrysotile and lizardite. Bowenite is a variety of antigorite and is one of the more popular for carving and is usually called New Jade. Bowenite has a hardness between 4 and 6, compared to 5.5 to 7 for Nephrite and Jadeite or "real jade". Being somewhat softer and less expensive in its natural state, Bowenite or Serpentine (Let's call it New Jade) is a perfect choice for the sculpture. Serpentine, like Nephrite and Jadeite, comes in a variety of colors, from white to black, with the beautiful greens in between.
Isn't "Real" Jade more valuable than "New Jade"
This is next to impossible to answer.
Nephrite and Jadeite in their natural state are less abundant than Serpentine. Therefore at the most basic level, one can say that yes, Real Jade is more expensive. However, what makes one more valuable than the other? Clearly, value is in the eye of the beholder and comes from the hands of the artisan.
