What is "Imperial Jade"?
Imperial jade refers to Imperial Green jadeite found in Burma. Only jadeite with elements of Chromium (Cr++) are considered imperial green jade. They are a deep green in color and very valuable. A paler green is due to the presence of iron (Fe). Those pieces are not considered imperial green jade. They can still be quite valuable, although not as valuable as Imperial green Jade.
