Hidaka Jade from Hokkaido, Japan

Stone Meaning: Wisdom & Longevity

About the stone: Hidaka Jade was first discovered in Hidaka City, Hokkaido in 1966.

The exact minerals are chromite-diopside which develops a pale green colour thanks to the 1% of chrome it has inside. Other ingredients include spinel, as well as uvarovite and amphibole such as pectolite.

Hidaka Jade is neither jadeite nor a nephrite, it has a fibrous structure that is characteristic of jade and it is recognized that its colour and transparency are comparable to jade.

Dr Takeo Bamba (Geological Survey of Japan ) published an essay in a gemological journal and it was recognized that this stone is the "third jade" next to nephrite and jade.
