Named after the exotic Northeastern province of China in which it is found, Ching Hai "jade" is translucent to opaque mottled green and white rock consisting of dolomite, fuchsite and additional minerals. The soft nature of the stone makes it a good choice to use in designs that are protected from heavy abuse. Sizes, shapes and colors may vary with handcrafted items.
