White jade is a variety of nephrite which consists primarily of tremolite, and is not considered to be true jade. This type of nephrite can span from a white to a cream color, but can sometimes have inconsistencies in the color pattern as well.
It’s important to note that while all white jade consists of tremolite, not all tremolite is white. Some varieties can also be yellow, blue, or even black in color. If it is yellow in color, it is often referred to as “Mutton Fat Jade”. If it is cream or light brown in color, it is often referred to as “Chicken Bone Jade”.
This mineral is commonly used to craft jewelry, such as pendants, necklaces, or bracelets, but is also used for carving statues, figurines, and other art forms as well.
