White Jade is a type of Tremolite Jade, which is itself a nephritic Jade. Jade is actually a catch-all term for two seperate stones - jadeite and nephrite. Jades are formed in metamorphic rocks. They are composed of fine-grained crystal structures. The distinctive green color of jade is actually caused by impurities of chromium. White jade has less of these impurities.
