"New Jade” is not a form of Jadeite or Nephrite. Instead it’s a form of Serpentinite, a metamorphic rock. Rocks are distinct from minerals. An easy way to understand the difference is that rocks are like cookies and minerals are ingredients like flour or sugar. Many different minerals are used to create a rock! In the case of New Jade, it is a mixture of several different Serpentine minerals, mainly Antigorite, Chrysotile, and Lizardite.
