Identifying fake Jade is difficult if seen only with the naked eye or through images
There is a need for modern equipment inspection.
With the most common way I use to distinguish glue-treated Jadeite, I will use a flashlight with ultraviolet light to look at the jade ring, a closer look will reveal the polymer glue coated in it and emits blue light.
I would like to introduce to you a site that introduces the history of cam thach Jade here: https://daquyneja.com/da-cam-thach/
The more I learn about Jade, the more I love them.
Whenever I wear the bracelet on my hand, I feel my spirit is always comfortable.
Jade gives rise to spiritual elements, making users feel the "soul" of matter for millions of years, hiding in a profound and favorable place, absorbing the yin and yang spirit of heaven and earth.

@ ha Thien
Firstly welcome to this great forum.
Thank you for the link to your website with an introduction to jade.
I dont know why you refer to jadeite jade and jade as marble since marble is an entirely different stone structure with a mohs grading of 3. Perhaps it is a language barrier thing when I translated to English.
I have heard most recently that there is a new form of dye/treatment that renders the use of a UV light useless. Have you heard or come across these new techniques etc?
I agree with you on the issue of difficulty regarding the authentication of jade without the proper gem laboratory tools etc. It can be a real maze of difficulty out there without the due experience and knowledge.
be sure that my intention was not to humiliate you, in no way. My intention was to tell you that it is not correct, in respect to others, to write that way. Sorry, I am saying what frankly I think.
When reading, everybody starts reading at a certain speed and keep that speed constant until he finds a punctuation. If there is no punctuation, everybody reads the text as if it is a single sentence, and he must make an effort to try to place the punctuations in the right place, in order to understand the meaning of the writer. It is the punctuation that gives intelligibility to a sentence.
That, sorry to be frank, is true not only in writing but also in conversation. If somebody speaks words after words at constant sequence, with no pauses at all like it is in your writings, he is not understandable unless a big effort from the listener, who after a while will for sure stop to listen.
People (at least me) is not willing to have to pay efforts, read and re-read, for trying to understand a text, being forced to do so by a writer that skip punctuations for laziness.
Take your above sentence (or sentences, who knows?): “i thought this was a site where people could come to with out binging, humiliate or put down.That like a lot of folk think Chinese painted and made porcelain pieces only in Chinese style,that when out the window in Qing period onwards good luck to you all, John”.
That is not understandable to me, and I am convinced that it is not totally clear also to native English speakers.
I am saying this, dear John, not to humiliate you but for rightly let you face the real situation.
I am more than happy to read your posts, and help if I can, if they are understandable.
Perhaps a problematic English translation, this article addresses jade and nephrite as two different minerals.
But in our country, jadeite is the common term for these two stones.
I agree with you that marble treatment methods are getting more and more advanced and I don't have any exact way to identify fake marble besides bringing them to gem inspection centers.

The art of calligraphy - and for the ancient Chinese it certainly was an art - aimed to demonstrate superior control and skill using brush and ink. Calligraphy established itself as one of the major Chinese art forms during the Han dynasty (206 BCE - 220 CE), and for two millennia after, all educated men were expected to be proficient at it.
