Highly translucent, fine quality gem. The name 'Jade', usually referring to rocks made of Jadeite, is almost always, also applied to rocks consisting entirely of Omphacite. It also occurs in blue-ish tones and it forms under extremely high pressure conditions.



Omphacite is rarely used for its energetic properties, but it will help bringing serenity and harmony into any situation, and it can help to relieve stress and emotionally charged issues. It will help to keep you determined and focused on any situation, taking away all confusion and providing clarity and inner peace.


A group of jade experts were selected to be part of the jury that qualified each piece of the participants. Three amazing carvers were selected as winners and received cash prizes and medals made from this precious stone. The jury was made up jade connoisseurs Robert Terzuola, Charlotte Ward, Andrew Shaw, George Schmerholtz and Deborah Wilson.

These were the results of the contest:

1st. - Juan Antonio Castellanos (Guatemala)

2nd. - Adán Pilicastro Alcázar (Mexico)

3rd. - Dante López Castillo (Mexico)
