    Default Black Jade

    Isn't there another name, dominican or otherwise, for this gem stone? A friend of mine who recently visited the DR would like to know. Gracias!

    There are huge numbers of jet black pebbles of various sizes amongst the white ones on the pebble beach at Barahona. Some years back, some were cut & polished by a Dominican jewellery company (Harisons ?) who called it "black jade". It has an attractive "soft" appearance and is apparently full of actinolite crystals, which make it extremely difficult to breask. Canadian Bob.
