Is it Jade or is it Pseudojade?
Few gemstones are imitated as often and as deceptively as jade. Eric Hoffman's presentation will briefly review the characteristics of true jade, both nephrite and jadeite, and then focus on the many look-alikes, treatments, and alterations. He will explain a few simple tests to defend yourself against fake jade, using equipment you already have.
