Sky Jade Specimen 3
Our Wyoming Sky Zone has now been conclusively demonstrated as a primary source of one of the most unusual and unique nephrite Jades in the world, Jade which occurs concurrently with embedded quartz crystals. Current literature suggests that Wyoming Jades are the only such type of occurrence from any Jade districts worldwide.
While historically, early specimens of such materials from the 1950’s were treated to show the quartz and jade relationship with simple slabbing, Jade Leader’s own testing and cutting capacities allow us to further curate unique hand harvested specimens with curved polished surfaces which both show the true depth of color and translucency of the gem nephrite Jade as well as more clearly show the relationship between the Jade and crystals in a flowing matrix.
This specimen has a front domed highly polished gem Jade surface showing rind alteration development, quartz crystals both in long and cross sections, and bent quartz crystals. It weighs 1,048 grams, has a maximum height of 16 cm, maximum width of 12 cm and a maximum thickness of 5.8 cm.
Wyoming Jade. All of our Jades are ethically and mindfully hand harvested in our 100% owned mineral claims.
