The hardness of the Hetian jade is between 6 to 6.5. The density is between 2.96 to 3.17. Most of the nephrite jade in the world are green. However, there is a wide variety of Hetian nephrite jade and the white Hetian nephrite jade is the best. Normally, the Hetian jade is silky, exquisite, moist, and bright. Hetian nephrite jade is called 'China stone' by Gem and Jewelry Trading Association of China. The nephrite jade is a naturally occurring and coherent aggregate of several minerals.
