British Columbia's Jade mines produce around 75% of the Earth's nephrite jade available for purchase each year. Polar jade is the brightest most translucent nephrite jade featuring a pure green color. Polar Jade was discovered and mined in Northern British Columbia, Canada.
From portal lights to book-matched wall panels, window art, furniture, and polished boulders, BC jade can be carved so perfectly into any design fit for your decor. The skilled mastery of BC's top stone sculptors heightens the ambiance and display of this jade lighting.
Window panel art is exquisite as the natural sunlight beams through amplifying the stones patterns to see the contrast deep within. Tabletops and standing slabs are remarkable with a light underneath or behind. The hardness of the stone ensures that the stone won't scratch, chip or break, it is perfect for any living space.
Jade mining begins from mountains that contain bountiful deposits of jade. Jade is exposed using diamond-tipped core drills to extract samples. This process ensures that the jade meets requirements before proceeding with the grueling process of excavating in these rugged mountains. Hydraulic spreaders are then inserted into cleavage points in the rock to break away from the mountain zone. Once the boulders detach from the jade mine and the jade is easily accessible, it is machine cut into more manageable 10-tonne or smaller pieces using water-cooled diamond saws. The jade is then loaded onto trucks and transported to the proper storage and cutting facilities.
