Aren’t they called snowflakes? Like this
Yes, it looks like a princess. Not sure if those impurities have a name... I have some in my bluish green Burmese bangle now. The seller called it "white specks formation".
The light green colour is so soothing to look at and the princess cut (totally cylindrical cross section) makes it look so refined and pretty I haven’t found my permanent bangle yet!
I was having problems too. Had to switch from Safari to Chrome. Beautiful pendant.With a mystic knot today.
I must say, I’ve been having a difficult time loading this and other threads ever since TPF came back after being down a day on Wednesday. I’ve had to switch to Chrome (from Firefox) on my Mac but I still need to load and reload till pictures and posts all show up. Anyone else having problems?

Very soothing, calm and beautiful color. I have heard it referred to as cotton.
Fascinating to look at the raw rock. Reminds me of cheese slabs heheHey! Thought I'd share this video from the Nephrite man in BilliBilli (might start calling him Nephrite man at this point ) where he just uploaded a video of a stone pretending to be a golden variant of nephrite and he shows how resistant nephrite is to scratching. Could be very useful if you guys are ever scared but curious how hard nephrite is.
That square nephrite is beautiful! I think I’m one of the few that actually prefers nephrite over jadeite.Here it is paired with my square green nephrite and princess round Edwards Black nephrite. The nephrites were made by Allan Spehar. He is such an artist. I just love him. I actually like the color on your moss in snow/floating flower bangle better than mine because it is a brighter green. Sometimes I think that spinach green is too dark.
