About BC Jade
British Columbia is the world’s largest producer and exporter of nephrite Jade. Occurrences of Nephrite in BC consist of glacially deposited boulder fields, talus blocks and in situ lenses. In-situ nephrite deposits occur at or near contacts of ultramafic/mafic rocks and metasedimentary or igneous felsic rocks of oceanic terranes. Interest in BC jade has increased over the past several years resulting in a dramatic increase of both price and demand.
