    Naturally formed bubble jade beads.

    I've been working on processes to get it to this stage. There's still some shock and drilling tests to perform.

    These are abundant at the mine and soon to be available in wholesale and gem quality lots.

    In this image. they're about 1-3cm. I have some smaller and quite a bit larger in conglomerated form. The process involves minor crushing into washable pieces, then tumbled overnight to release individual bubbles.

    What isn't used as natural beads can be shaped into cabochons with beautiful results. There remains other pieces, shapes and clusters suitable for pendants, earrings and other things.

    Something to add value to available jade, while we survey for large blocks and boulders.
