Book Overview

This title introduces young readers to jade, the mineral used for thousands of years as both jewelry and weapons. Learn about the two types of jade, jadeite and nephrite, how jade is formed, and where it is found. Historical and modern mining methods are detailed. The many uses of jade in ancient and modern times are examined. See how artisans such as lapidaries use jade to create beautiful and useful jewelry. Finally, a list of tools and tips will set young rock hounds up to unearth their own treasures. Glossary words in bold, an index, and phonetic spellings for those hard-to-pronounce geologic terms enhance and supplement the text. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards. Checkerboard Library is an imprint of Abdo Publishing, a division of ABDO.
