Some of the best, and most translucent, nephrite in the world comes from Siberia. Because of severe weather conditions Siberian river jade can only be collected about 2 months of each year. The Wyoming jades listed on this page are natural specimens carved by natures wind and sand. The California jades are collected while scuba diving in the Pacific Ocean.
