Wyoming Jade Cabochon
Beautiful green semi-translucent piece of jade.
Wyoming Jade is actually nephrite jade discovered in Wyoming in the early 1900s, where some very high quality jade has been found. It is hard and tough and can vary in color from an opaque black to translucent apple green.. The green color is caused by iron within the crystal lattice. If no iron is present the result is an almost colorless or cloudy white variety of jade. Other varieties of Wyoming jade include translucent, emerald-green; apple- green, olive-green, leaf-green, black, and snowflake jade. The apple-green and translucent varieties are rarer and more valuable.
