Jade is believed to have a protective function ( against the bad fortune ) in the Chinese culture. Genuine jade shows its beauty after being worn for a period of time. The even distribution of the green and white and the transparency of the jade are used to calculate the value of the piece. The nature of the texture and color is not the lab jade that can compare.
