About Jadeite

Jadeite is popular all over the world for its beautiful serene mint green color, and it is used in a huge variety of items, from bowls to bangles. Jadeite is a type of jade discovered in the 19th century. It is harder than nephrite, the previously known type of jade, and it comes in white, yellow, pink, red, and lavender as well as green. Green jadeite is still the most popular type. Beaded necklaces, intricately carved Chinese pendants, and simple bangles are popular. In the 1940s, demand grew so high that a company called Fire King developed jadeite glass. Like the mineral, it comes in several different shades, and it is used in jewelry, kitchen items, and more. You can choose simple vintage dishes, bowls, or coffee cups. Ornamental candy dishes constructed from this unique material are made to look like roosters, cabbages, bunnies, and more. Jadeite glass items are still being made by several companies, and they can give you the same look as jade without the cost. With the vast inventory on eBay, you can find the best jadeite or jadeite glass items for you.
