Jadeite, nephrite and serpentinite

    Jade (jadeite) is a jewelry-article stone mainly of green color of various tints. Owing to combination of physical chemical properties mentioned below, it is widely used in stone-cutting, instrument-making industry and electrical engineering. In the countries of South-East Asia it enjoys wide popularity and is treated as a cult stone. Nephrite and serpentinite are better known, and are used in similar application.

    The Deposit (one of the three largest known on the territory of the CIS) is situated in the northern part of Western Sayan, and represents a serpentine belt, containing separate isolated bodies (lenses, veins) of jades and nephrite. The mined site is a jade stripe around 500 m. wide and 6-8 km. long. Thanks to geological-mining conditions and productive capacities, annual output and sale of sorted jade amounts to 100 and more tons.
