Jade can be used to describe several different rocks. Technically it should only be a mineral called nephrite, or a mineral called jadeite. Jadeite is usually the rarer and more valuable of the two. Jadeite from Burma is particularly sought after.
Jade has long had a role in folk tradition. It is generally associated with prosperity, longevity, good fortune and well being.
