Big Sur Jade Slick “Pumpkin Jade”

written by 2 Comments posted in Jade

This slick is locally called “Pumpkin Jade”. It is very sought after for it’s color contrasts. It is acutally a combination of Nephrite Jade and Hydorgrossular Garnet (HGG) The yellow/orange colors in the slick are the HGG. I did a specific gravity test on this slick to verify its weight falling in between that of nephrite and HGG.
