When buying anything make sure you get an official invoice otherwise problems could come up when leaving the country.

This is not so relevant in Myanmar (Burma) but very relevant in Thailand.

Jadeite Jade Color.
Colors are in the the rainbow spectrum from white to black with every shade in between most popular is green lavender and white. The deep green is also known as Imperial Jade and fetches the highest prices when it has the right parameter. Manufacturers try to manipulate the gems by filling cracks with raisin under high pressure and “enhance” the jadeite color via heat treatment and / or keeping the stones in a chemical solution for a while. Since they don’t tell this to customers they are crooks and the buyer of the piece has a bad surprise after 2-3 years when all this "enhancements" deteriorates. It really makes sense to know what is jadeite as sold here in the Thailand border town of Mae Sot. Most trader come from Myanmar but some from Thailand and even India.
There is also some material less shiny and colorful which is relatively affordable that is nephrite, but not only also the other version is lower priced when the quality is not top.
The best always has something to do with translucency. All this is real genuine with some silver and gold in between. There is no enhancements or similar just pure natural jadeit stones.
The mineral has a new "spring" time.
So to say since people got more buying power to shop for the jade stones. Many of them buy the jadeite stone since it has a mythical touch built up over thousands years and not within the reach of normal people before since it was simply too expensive or socially distributed.
On the other side it is possible to buy genuine jadeite bangles already for around seven dollars and up at the Bogyoke Aung San Market in Yangon or at the Mae Sot street market in Thailand this is no joke.
Of course its visible that's not an high end item but its genuine and looks not bad . There is a interesting symbiosis since people of China adjacent to Myanmar are the world's biggest consumers of the stone and the other is the biggest producer of high end material. Although there is substantial processing into sculptures such as Buddha statues and other objects going on in Burma by far the largest processing is in China. They have plenty of processing technological know-how, myriads of people working as artists, carvers and producing fascinating jadeite jewelry.
There are state-owned manufacturing companies and private owned but the state companies are the majority. Every big city in China has its stone markets supplying the mineral in various forms to millions of people.
Manipulation attempts are many.
Many jade dealer try to squeeze money by cheating customers with all tricks such as bleaching the material in an acid bath heating up the stone to improve colors plus some tricks with resin to fill gaps are also known and more.
When you imagine that jade is the major gemstone in the Chinese World for at least 6 millenniums it is imaginable that they had plenty of time for testing. Another problem is there are no basic parameters that can be used as a guideline such as it is with diamonds and the 4C's let's say with ruby stones.
Guangzhou is a manufacturing center for Jadeite in China.
Guangzhou is a main manufacturing center for rough Myanmar (Burmese) jade. Other are in Shenzhen Yunnan's Tengchong Kunming Nanyang, Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong and at least a dozen more, China actually is the worldwide manufacturing center. Since new technologies are adapted in recent times its getting easier to create sophisticated art work plus the easy spread of information and pictures make it quite easy to tell everyone what is available.
The evidence is clear China has grown to be the world's top processing country of jadeite jade and Myanmar is the top supplier of high-quality rough material. Most rough nephrite today comes from British Columbia and Australia these days.

There are exactly 2 species of natural jade and this is Nephrite and Jadeite. Jadeite is the high-end and therefore more valuable the reason is the purer saturated colors and the finer textures. Jadeite is a sodium-rich pyroxene mineral formed by fine-grained crystals in metamorphic rocks under high pressure but low temperatures. In itself jadeite is white however different hues were generated by gases in the formation of the rock.
Green Color of Jade why?
The green color of jadeite is the result of chromium impurities. High-quality emerald green and saturated jadeite with minimal veins and no impurities is another factor of imperial jade here. Jade prices also depends on the natural transparency of the stone and the more transparent the stone becomes the higher the value climbs. In China several jade manufacturer use the translucency issue as a manipulation door to push prices they bath the stone for a longer time in various acidic liquids to achieve certain hues and level of translucency.
Jadeite jade with many colors.
