Jade is a name used to describe 2 different minerals, the first of which is Nephrite and a second which is named as Jadeite. Even though they look similar, their chemical composition is different. The best way to distinguish between Nephrite and Jadeite is through a “chime test”. When tapped with a hard object, Nephrite will let out a musical tone while Jadeite will not.
