ABOUT US

Our path was destined to be so, we are told. In vain, we seek that perfect track. We put our torchlight to work, we see traces, revelations, clues. We realise then that the light inside us has always been present, that we are driven by the strength within us. For there is no one objective reality; everything is but a perception.

 

Our decisions are guided by the gravity of relativity, our actions malleable as we live fluidly, proudly, and therefore, extraordinarily. From crevices, we rise; we are broken open as we transform. We are as strong as our weaknesses, just as the sun and the moon walk the Earth.  

 

Our story never ends. Find yours here.

 

CLASSIFICATIONS

Only type A jadeite are considered natural jadeite. Other types are all considered processed jadeite. All jadeite sold in Royan Jade are strictly Type A natural jadeite without chemical treatments.

 

TYPE A (Natural Jadeite):

Natural jadeite without chemical treatments. Wax polishing process without destroying the structure of natural jade will not be regarded as a kind of chemical treatment.

 

TYPE B: 

Jadeite with chemical treatments and resin injections.

 

TYPE C:

Jadeite with dyeing treatments.

 

TYPE B+C:

Jadeite with chemical treatments, resin injections and dyeing treatments.

IDENTIFICATION METHODOLOGIES

DESTRUCTIVE TESTS (for laboratory purposes):

 

    Heating test: Heat resistance of natural jadeite is around 900-1000 degree Celsius. Processed jadeite will turn brown around 400 degree Celsius in a heating test. 

 

    Dissolution test: Resin injected into processed jadeite can be dissolved by resin solution and hence processed jadeite will become opaque paste in a dissolution test. 

 

NON-DESTRUCTIVE TESTS (for general identification purposes):

The following three specifications can be identified using instruments.

 

    Jadeite characteristics: weight, refractive index, specific gravity, etc

 

    Dyeing treatments detection: can be identified by Tao's filter, spectrometer and microscope

 

    Resin injections detection: can be identified by UV fluorescence test, specific gravity, microscope and infrared spectrometer

 

Identification certificates for jadeite sold in Royan Jade are all issued by internationally recognized laboratories which test jadeite through the above non-destructive identification procedures.
