Origin: BC, Canada
Description: I sorted these jade off-cuts based on cutting grade. The low grade... probably shouldn't be cut. The low grade is either cut-able but dark, or thin or poorly structured, etc. The low grade makes for great specimens though.

Rough is rough. We do our best to grade and describe pieces in the lot, but ultimately, they all differ.
