1.0 颗星，最多 5 颗星I am utterly appalled that these are called "Jade"

I guess my optimism was too great here in thinking I would get something real and not something fake as shown in the photographs. Man, was I very wrong! And the price alone should have made me run the other way! I am utterly appalled that this dealer dared to call whatever this stuff is, "Jade". It is absolutely nothing of the sort. Not even close. If anything, it's dyed green glass and nothing more. It is lightweight, gets warm when held for more than a few seconds (No true Jade gemstone would get warm due to its density) almost completely transparent with small little bubbles in it at 10x inspection through an eye loupe and the color is so wrong it's not even funny. If you are looking for true Jade it's best to look elsewhere because this stuff would make anyone with even an inkling of knowledge about gemstones laugh till they cried.
Always extremely happy with AD Beads. They're beads are absolutely gorgeous! I expected solid amethyst beads like those that are pictured which is what I'm looking for. I ordered 3 strands. One strand looks like Chevron Amethyst , 1 strand looks like bi color amethyst and the other almost all solid purple beads but vary in color from light to dark. The first 2 strands I mentioned are absolutely gorgeous. The other looks meh, pretty cloudy.
First time working with Sodalite, and I was really pleased with the strand I received. There were no chipped, mis-drilled, or misshapen beads, and the colors had enough variety to prove they weren't something dyed, but homogeneous enough that it will be easy to craft lots of cool and unique items from it.
I ordered four 8mm Amethyst strands. There was absolutely no uniformity. I understand natural and imperfections. However, it was as if they gathered them from four separate manufacturers: super light to very dark. A couple strands were not even 8mm. I need them to fill an 18 piece order. Now with time wasted, I must struggle to find strands that will blend. Very, very disappointed.
