Jade is the 12th wedding anniversary gemstone. Known as the “stone of heaven” it is actually two different gem materials, jadeite and nephrite. Jadeite is rarer than nephrite and the best jadeite is semi-transparent and has a smooth texture. Mayans and the Aztecs prized jadeite and Chinese cultures valued nephrite for centuries.
