Not far from the gem market in
Thailand is an old temple on a hill. The town is situated
about 300 km from the city of Bangkok. This big jade gem stone
was seen at the temple. It is indeed a huge jade rough stone
that could yield several high quality green jade gems as and
when cut. Since the big jade gem shown here belongs to the
temple, there is no present discussion to cut or alter it's
form. So at least for now this 2 foot high piece of green jade
rough stone will remain on the sturdy wooden table constructed
to accomodate the piece.
If you follow the contours of the
table top, you will notice that the table takes the precise
shape of the base of the big jade gem. Partially seen in the
image is a smaller green jade rough stone, that piece is
around 7 to 8 inches high which ofcourse is not small. It is
the enourmous size of the big rough jade piece that, dwarfs
the smaller piece placed next to it.
|A big jade gemstone on display at a temple in
Thailand. This huge jade rough stone was photographed in
a temple about 300 km from Thailand. You can see masses
of good jade gemstone all through this large rough
stone piece. |
Observe the big jade rough in the
image and you will see some, very clear indication of good
quality green jade throughout the rough. No definite plan has
been made by the temple to cut this big jade stone, but we can
analyze a few details of the cut and polished green jade gems
that this rough could yield.
Most green jade gems are cut in a
smooth cabachon form. About 30% of the green jade gems cut
from this big jade rough, would surely be in the 10 to 15
carat weight range. The important point to understand is that
these big green jade cut and polished stones, would be of a
good quality. The color spread would be uniform, there would
be visible fissures and cracks in them and the surface would
not be spotted or pitted. If you follow the trail and pattern
of the green patches in the jade (observe the above image),
you will notice that the center portion of each green patch
has a good color saturation. There is lightening of color as
you move to the extremities of each green patch.
You would therefore get a fairly
large quantity of green jade gems with good color. The lighter
portions could be cut into smaller pieces or, could be made
into larger pieces with visible color variations in a single
piece. Gem cutters are experts in working out the equation
between, cut gem sizes and the quality of these cut gems. For
example, there is no point in cutting a 50mm x 30mm oval green
jade if, the stone is going to have visible cracks and
One thing that is very sure is the
fact that, very little of the stone from this big jade rough
stone would be wasted. Remember that it is not only jewelry
applications to which jade gems are put. Impressive carvings
and objects are also cut from jade. Large jade carvings can be
made to look even better, when the stone has different colors
across the piece.
Before we wind up this report on
the big jade gemstone seen in Thailand, we would like to talk
about the origin of the stone. Since it is most likely that
this large jade rough stone came as a donation, there is no
official document to explain the origin of the jade. Thailand
itself does not have any known deposits of jade, it is very
likely the big jade rough piece came from neighboring Burma.
