There are two categories of jade, of which "jadeite" is the rarest, belonging to the pyroxene family. It is a hard, dense sodium aluminium silicate that forms in metamorphic rocks resulting from deep burial when one tectonic plate sinks beneath another.
Its colours range from white (pure jadeite) to green (iron or chromium impurities for the emerald green of imperial jade) to lavender/lilac (manganese and iron impurities) and all other shades in reds, oranges, yellows, browns and blacks. This jadeite comes from Myanmar (ancient Burma).
