Hotan Jade comes from Xinjiang, Western China. Since the times of Marco Polo in 1275 AD, almost 1,000 years ago, XInjiang was known as a mecca by locals and travellers alike as a mecca for jade and fine jewelry.
Despite being a little region in the far western deserts of Xinjiang, Hotan Jade is the most abundantly found variety in ancient and modern China.
Hotan Jade is the world's finest variety of Jade stone. Its crystal structure has rows-upon-rows of evenly shaped crystal grains, making its smooth texture very popular with jewelry markers.
