This art gallery is a collection dedicated to the color Jade. The mineral Jadeite, as a material, was popular throughout most of the world, especially in Asia and South America. Many different cultures used the precious stone to carve intricate designs and shapes for several unique purposes, such as storage or ceremonial decoration. The stone itself is typically of a green hue, but variations of it can range anywhere from a pale green/brown to near black. The color name "Jade" itself can refer to several shades of green.
