Here are something you’ll want to know to get the highest quality jade.

Tone and color: This describes the specific quality of a color grade. The finest colors are penetrating and vivid. They should be pure and evenly distributed.

Translucency and clarity: Ranges from near transparent to opaque. The highest quality has a consistent clarity like honey.

Cutting : The shaping of the jade.

Jade is most often sold by the piece rather than per carat. Although the overall color is the most important value factor, attention is also paid to translucency, texture, and also to pattern.
