For thousands of years jade has been one of the most mystical and historically significant stones on this planet.
Today in the west, it is one of the most unknown and undervalued gemstone.
In recent years, however, jade has been making a quiet surge, both in value and prestige.
CIRCLE of LIFE travels the world in search of the artists and miners who live and breathe jade and those visionaries most influential in bringing new life to the original Stone of Heaven.
Come celebrate BC Jade Day with our great friends at:
