Hidaka Jade 8mm Bracelet
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.
