SINCE HIGH QUALITY JADEITE IS RARE IN THE NATURE, MANY TREATMENT MATHODS WERE INTRADUCED INTO THE TRADE . SO GRADE A,B,C AND B+C WERE CLASSFIED.
GRADE A:jadeite has not been treated in any way except surface waxing.
GRADE B:To improve the transparency and colour of the material,using strong acid to "wash" away the colours of the impurities then apply the clear resin and hardner.
GRADE C: Dyed.
GRADE B+C: combination of B and C.
Transaction was quick and efficient; I hope the delivery is as well. The pendant looks charming. Intrigued to see whether the stone is equal to the photo. Does anybody know what the carving represents?
