Black Nephrite Jade Slabs
Black Nephrite Jade
is uniformly colored. When viewed in very bright light a slight greenish undertone
can sometimes be detected. This material makes good black jade stones. Jade has been revered for thousands of years in both the Orient and the New World.
Although jade has a reputation of being hard to polish, it polishes well with
diamond and takes a high polish with chrome oxide.
