'New Jade' is the industry trade name for a semi-translucent serpentine stone available in a variety of pale green shades including olive, sea green, green, and peridot. This pale pastel-green serpentine comes from from a newly discovered deposit and can resemble translucent jadeite from Burma, though it is softer and has a more resinous luster.
Metaphysically, serpentine jade has been used by healers and builders as a stone of protection, guidance, emotional control, and promotion of healthy energy flow.
