As Jade exploration remains a non-traditional space, Jade Leader Corp. is providing some links to online information that help understand the context of its current exploration efforts.
While it has a long history spanning over 7,000 years in China alone, it is only in the last 10 years or so that the rise of the Chinese economy to its current levels has completely changed the Jade industry demand, dynamics and prices, today, and for the foreseeable future.
The links are provided for background information only, and are believed to be representative of the industry, from credible sources. The Company makes no warranties or representations as to the content, which should always be independently verified.
Extensive compilation of articles on Jade history, culture, and technical aspects: Jade, with over 600 photographs of Jades from every continent, Consultant Editor Roger Keverne, published by Aquamarine, an imprint of Annes Publishing Ltd, Hermes House.
