Most jadeite from this location is gray blue with green hues. There area is directly east of the coast from Big Sur. This same area experiences the faults that shift in the Big Sur area. This jadeite was actually formed twice. The first is the bulk of the material and color but the extream forces in this area fractured most of this jadeite and the fractures were filled and repaired with pure white jadeite which look like white veins.
