Re: Linda in AJ

Linda, Something of particular interest with the photo of your cab is the area of light reflection. From what I can see from the photo it appears that the surface of the material has a bit of orange peel effect. This could be a clue that the material is Nephrite Jade. Jade can be a bugger to polish to a mirror finish. Jade comes in so many colors you wouldn't believe it, or maybe you would. I would say that the color of your cab certainly falls within the range of colors for Jade. And it is possible for Jade to have such inclusions as well. Keep in mind that all of what I have offered as possibilities are only guesses on my part. I am not a geoligist. Just a rockhound at heart.
