I love jadeite. I was fortunate to buy most of my collection at an estate sale and pretty inexpensively, too. I know part of the fun is the search for it, but to get it for such a steal was pretty exciting. Have you ever seen that one collector from MN who has his whole kitchen done in Jadeite? It's pretty incredible.

Lovely. I have a sqaure ring in that colour stone with a diamond edge. So many people comment because its so unusual but the colour is what makes it. I think they called it Vermarine?

Don't you just love it. The opaque green glass is my favorite. It reminds me of both my grandmothers who had plenty of it.

Thanks for sharing.

Oh, what a beautiful, summery colour (I'm freezing to death down here in oz at the moment!). Reminds me of soft sea breezes and ice-cold sorbet x
