In today’s extremely sophisticated world, many types of man made treatments have developed in order to enhance the color and translucency of jadeite jade. These treatments can include the use of dyes and other types of bleaching chemicals, used to first to take away, and then to replace the natural color with more vibrant man-made colors.

Another way in which people manipulate jadeite jade is to impregnate it with a polymer resin, which greatly improves both the clarity and translucency of the jadeite piece. This type of polymer plastic seeps into the fissures and cracks and ultimately impregnates the jadeite.

From my own experience in the gem industry, no one can actually claim to know the treatments that have been performed on a particular stone without first sending it to be tested at an internationally approved gemological laboratory. Time and time again, people who have claimed to be “experts” in the field of gemology have themselves, misidentified treated jadeite.

These successful treatments are sometimes very advanced and difficult to detect even for the most esteemed Gemologists and International Gemological Laboratories.

For all jadeite pieces, Gemological Laboratory Certifications offer a substantial increased in the value of jadeite while also providing the owner with a guarantee that the jadeite is natural and untreated. Certificates usually accompany high end stones and are considered to be a wise investment in the present world economy, something that will continue to appreciate in time.
