Flower Jade, is a form of Jadeite that is composed of a sodium aluminum silicate and Nephrite. Flower Jade may be mottled shades of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, lilac, pink, black, white or brown. Most of the Flower Jade stones in Miriam’s Private Collection of Gemstones are in subtle and neutral tones of yellow, green, and brown. This lovely and versatile stone has been known and treasured for more than 6,000 years and has been revered by ancient cultures as the ultimate Dream Stone. It’s origins are Japan, Myanmar, Guatemala, and North America. (For more details about all these "Jade" gemstones, and more, please see "Gemstones of the World" by Walter Schumann, 5th Edition).
