    • Vintage New Jade twisted oval beads 20x10mm on 16-inch strands
    • These are a great shape, rarely seen anymore, they add a very distinctive look to necklaces and can also work as earrings.
    • New Jade is a light green form of Serpentine, sometimes called Hsiu Jade, or Korean Jade, a term also associated with Olive Jade, another Serpentine.
    • New Jade’s color ranges from a pale true green, to a light yellow-green. Depending on which type you have, it works well with a variety or other greens; light or Cape Amethysts or Pearls and gold; or warm earth tones from yellow-orange through dark brown. Surprisingly it can also work with bright reds like Cinnabar. When working with direct opposites, designs generally work best if the quantities of each color used are uneven
