Nephrite Jade (a form of Pounamu) is a calcium-magnesium silicate that varies from translucent to opaque and comes in many variants of colour. It is formed by the intensive heat and pressure some 10km deep within the earth under the South Al[ps of NZ. Nephrite Jade, also known as Pounamu or Greenstone, was forced to the surface by the movement of Pacific and Australian Tectonic plates over many millions of years. Jade is known as the stone of "Good Luck". While only average on the hardness scale, Nephrite has an amazing toughness allowing intricate carving that retains great strength. Typically forming on the West Coast of the South Island NZ, Nephrite Jade is part of the Pounamu Family and is the stone of good luck and love.
