Two different minerals are commonly known as JADE: Jadeite and Nephrite. Jadeite is a mineral in it’s own right (Sodium Aluminum Silicate). Nephrite (Calcium Aluminum Silicate), is an amphibole variety of Tremolite or Actinolite. Many other green minerals have been misnamed Jade.
From Wikipedia: Jade is an ornamental rock, mostly known for its green varieties, which feature prominently in ancient Asian art. The term jadeis applied to two different metamorphic rocks that are composed of different silicate minerals:
- Nephrite consists of a microcrystalline interlocking fibrous matrix of the calcium, magnesium-iron rich amphibole mineral series tremolite (calcium-magnesium)-ferroactinolite (calcium-magnesium-iron). The middle member of this series with an intermediate composition is called actinolite (the silky fibrous mineral form is one form of asbestos). The higher the iron content, the greener the colour.
- Jadeite is a sodium- and aluminium-rich pyroxene. The precious form of jadeite jade is a microcrystalline interlocking growth of jadeite crystals.
