Malaysia "jade" can be found in a myriad of colors, the most common being: red, green, blue, lavender, turquoise, pink, watermelon and pure white.
In ancient times, colorless quartz was used in urns, caskets, vases and pitchers that were part of the royal treasure as well as for ornaments, rosaries and necklaces. Some ancient civilizations believed quartz to be incarnations of the divinity and was thought to be alive.
