More information on Jade from Fire Mountain


The Guatemalan jade I offer is from Jades, S.A. the largest jade operation in Central America. Certified to be fine Guatemalan Jade, quarried, cut and polished on site by native Guatemalan workers who follow the carving traditions of their ancestors and purchased in person right from the factory. This is the same jade used by the Maya people for jewelry and tools.  Jadeite is harder and denser than any other jade and possesses a richer, more brilliant range of colors.  It is rarer and more expensive than Nephrite Jade. The color of jadeite in my jewelry may be either “Maya Mint” (cool, lighter green) “Black Forest” ( a deep, rich green, almost black) or “Mint Forest” (a gorgeous combination of dark & lighter greens).  These colors are unique to the quarries in Guatemala.
