Lavender Jade
« on: April 27, 2021, 06:21:18 AM »

Just finished this piece of Guatemalan Lavender jade.  I like the mottled colour.  I have imported jade and nephrite via a well known auction/selling site on the web.  I do this as I either have to buy finished cut stone or rubbish stone from some craft beads sites in the UK, which is over priced and not really suitable carving.  I have never bought any stone from China via the afore mentioned source.  Has anybody bought stone from China this way?  Can anyone thick of better sources of stone I can import?  Here is my lavender piece which I am quite happy with except I see a few lumps on it and I could have shaped the bells a little better but I was feeling unsure how much pressure to apply for fear of brakeage.  Total length 40mm.

Lots of people are getting excellent lavender jadeite from central America.
