Imperial green is a popular term for a vivid green hue similar to top quality emeralds. This vivid shade of green represents the top in class quality of natural jadeite.
The colour in this beautiful green jadeite cabochon is a perfect example of such vivid green hues. In natural lighting, the vivid green has a brilliant glow. This is primarily due to the intense green hue, but also complemented by the high translucency in this jadeite cabochon. The translucency is unlike most vivid green specimens of jadeite which are dry in texture with low translucency.
The last 2 photos taken in indoor lighting showcase the vivid and pure green hue that this jadeite cabochon displays. As mentioned, the translucency in this cabochon is high and thus even indoors, the lustrous look of the jadeite piece can be easily seen.
Jadeite cabochons in vivid green hues with good translucency are rare and exceedingly hard to find, making this piece ideal to keep as an investment jewellery.
This jadeite cabochon is natural Type A and has not been enhanced. The main photos are taken in natural lighting and there are 2 additional photos taken with indoor lighting. For reference, the indoor lighting has a colour temperature of 4000K.
