The Illusion of Black Jadeite

May 12, 2018

 

 

This omphacite-jadeite color is actually not black, in reality it is just such a dark green from the trace elements mainly chromium and iron. This allows it to absorb blue and orange visible light, allowing only the black color to be seen by the naked eye when viewed under reflected lighting conditions.
