Soochow Jade presents in beautiful earthy greens, browns, and chalky whites. This stone is sometimes heat-treated to enhance or darken color.

Soochow Jade is actually a type of serpentine, a magnesium silicate. Many serpentines are used as more affordable alternatives to jade. Serpentine can be found on every continent, but Soochow Jade is specific to China.

As a type of serpentine, Soochow Jade is said to promote clearing the mind and meditation.
