Jade is a generic term that is applied to two different types of gemstones namely jadeite and nephrite. In fact, the rocks containing aggregates of both these gemstones are collectively known as jade.

Most of the Jade that is available in the markets is in the form of nephrite and, in fact, jade as jadeite is quite rare. When jade is in jadeite form, it is translucent and emerald green. It looks royal and classy with some people referring it as Imperial Jade.
Jade is a term that has traditionally been applied to many different materials that appear similar to jadeite and nephrite but do not contain either of these gemstones. This is the reason why people remain confused between true jade and materials that are superficially called jade. There is Indian jade, Chinese jade, Mexican jade, and so on but these are not true jade as they do not contain either nephrite or jadeite. For example, Korean jade contains serpentine while Indian jade contains aventurine. In China, the word jade has mistakenly been used to refer to many different materials like soapstone and calcite that resemble true jade.
Jadeite is also called soft jade. It is one of the two forms that jade is found in nature, the other being nephrite. Jadeite is aluminous pyroxene that is rich in sodium.

Jadeite is harder than nephrite, and its hardness is between 6.5 and 7 on Mohs scale.
