What Is the Value of Jade?

Answer

The most valuable jade is high grad jadeite, with glowing translucence and a radiant, vibrant emerald green.  Jadeite of this calibre is reserved for use in jewellery and is almost never "carved" but rather cut en cabochon or made into a bead. Jadeite like this can be worth millions of dollars.
