200 tons of jade


Seems some diggers have uncovered a 200 ton block of jadeite worth $174.6 million. That’s one big hunk of precious rock. China will get the honor of turning it into statues and jewelry.

The most valuable rock I’ve ever found was a geode. :o

Your title is how I feel about this election.

(Sorry, I just couldn’t resist.)

Piffle. There’s an entire mountain of jade in Alaska called, aptly enough, Jade Mountain.

Soft jade.

Specifically nephrite, chrysotile, and tremolite.
