What people think of as jade is actually one of two different stones: Jadeite, a sodium aluminum silicate, and nephrite, made from calcium magnesium silicate. Both can be striking shades of green and make fantastic jewelry. Most of the jade used in Everyday Element pieces is jadeite mined in Guatemala, where it has a rich cultural history of use dating back to the Mayan civilization.
