Differentiating Jadeite and Nephrite Using Spectral Data

Learn how FT-IR microspectroscopy enables rapid, non-destructive identification

RedWave Technology

Differentiating jadeite, nephrite, and other green minerals is important to ensure that jade gems and artifacts are correctly identified and valued, as well as in order to detect forgeries. It is important to have a method that can do so in a non-destructive manner so that valuable gems or antiquities remain intact.
