This type of translucent black jadeite occurs naturally in only small amounts throughout the host material, making it one of the most elusive and rare gemstones on the planet, far rarer than that of rubies or diamonds.
Black Jadeite is not only valuable as jewelry, but it is also viewed by many cultures to possess certain powers and mystical qualities such as protection from accidents and accumulation of wealth.
Far rarer than both diamonds and rubies is that of Burmese Translucent Imperial Black Omphacite Jadeite Jade. Only a fraction of the jadeite found in Myanmar is black of which only about 5% is of a fine enough texture that it could be made into jewelry (cabochons). Of that 5% of jewelry quality black jadeite found in Myanmar, only about 1% is translucent in nature and will turn a brilliant imperial green when put under a transmitted light source.
Considered extremely rare in the current world market, Burmese Imperial Translucent Black Omphacite-Jadeite Jade is a unique stone to possess. It is said that this type of Jadeite takes at least 3 times longer to form (300 million years) than jadeite of other colors making the presence of this stone very limited, only found randomly in small amounts.
For many people, Imperial Translucent Black Omphacite Jadeite Jade symbolizes the power of protection.
