Canadian Jade Round Beads are polished smooth round beads made from a type of green serpentine. Canadian Jade is actually a trade name for this beautiful Serpentine semi-precious gemstone. Like true jade, this particular serpentine is extremely tough and great for jewelry. This bead has a vivid, translucent green with a sprinkling of black inclusions. This bead is not BC Jade or Nephrite Jade.
