Peruvian Black Jade

(Lemurian Jade)

The Peruvian Black Jade (also called Lemurian jade) is mined in a quarry within the area of ​​the capital, Lima. It is a soft porous stone.

Due to its internal structure, black jade is a difficult stone to polish. At Gemrock Peru, however, we have developed a polishing technique that provides the best possible polish on this stone.

Peruvian Black Jade often comes with small pyrite flecks or fine pyrite lines included, which is a good way to identify the rock.
