Our medium sized hetian nephrite jade eggs are 100% authentic gemstone quality and certified nephrite. Nephrite is known as the “Stone Of Heaven”, and has tightly woven structures that make the eggs the perfect choice for a yoni egg, as unwanted bacterias cannot get through any porous areas due to its high quality.
Why choose Hetian Nephrite? Hetian in Xinjiang is famous for its high-quality nephrite jade, which is made up of tremolite. In terms of quality, the more tremolite there is the better quality the jade. Tremolite is transparent, so when it forms into ores, most of them are creamy white. However, Hetian jade comes in about seven different colors: creamy white, green white, green, blue green, dark green, red and yellow. Such diversity is caused by the volcanic eruptions. There’s no tremolite on Earth’s crust. Streams of lava which contain tremolite will mix with minerals when they flow from the volcano.
Hetian jade is mined from many places, such as Canada and Korea. According to the national standard in China, all of this jade can be labeled as Hetian jade. It’s a broad concept. But in terms of China’s cultural traditions dating back thousands of years, Heitan only refers to the kind of jade in Xinjiang’s Hetian region. Actually in Xinjiang, Hetian jade is not only found around the Kunlun Mountains. Other places, such as Manas in the northern part of Tianshan Mountains, also have Hetian jade.
