CONTEMPORARY JADE SCULPTURE .
Tasmanian and Australian Jade. Nephrite. political paintings and artwork
Contemporary Jade Sculpture. Jade [Nephrite] is a semiprecious gem stone and the toughest material found in the universe. Diamonds are harder, but jade is tougher, in that if you hit a Diamond it will shatter, whereas Jade will not. Jade is unlike any other found material, it is the only stone made of microscopic interlocking fiber, highly compressed with intense heat over one and a half billion years ago, giving the stone its extreme toughness, It is also very hard, and very dense, rendering the stone heavy, resistant to wear, and able to take a high polish. Jade was first discovered in Australia in 1947. Australia has the largest deposits of the highest quality black [dark green] Jade in the world. however colors in Australian Jade range from white, through blue greens to dark green, sold as Black Jade. This is the one of the few studios working Australian Jade into fine art pieces, and one of the few Jade studios in the world producing fine art pieces in that material. Titanium, complimentary to Jade, is the toughest, lightest, strongest material made by man. It is well suited to sit alongside Jade. These are eminently collectable pieces of art carved from individual rough gemstones of Australian Jade quarried in South Australia. N.S.W. and Tasmania.
