Guatemala is the home of Mayan jadeite and is found in the remote Motagua Valley quarries. To the Pre-Columbian people of Mesoamerica, jade represented breath, life, fertility, city, and power.
Jade is the term given to two similar gem materials, called jadeite and nephrite. Jadeite is harder than nephrite; it is found in a wider range of colors, from white through various greens to lilac, blue, black, and takes a high polish. Jadeite is a silicate of sodium and aluminum.
