种是翡翠的绿色与透明度的总称， 也是翡翠结构与质地的表现形式， 是评价翡翠优劣的一个极重要的标志。 懂得欣赏翡翠的人， 非常重视选择种好的翡翠，有的人似乎将种看得比颜色还重要， 故有“外行看色， 内行看种”之说。行内还有句话就是 “种好遮三丑”，指的是有种的翡翠不但可使颜色浅的翡翠显得晶莹漂亮，而且可使不够均匀的颜色由于相互映照而显得均匀， 更可使质地不够细的翡翠显得不明显。 所以有经验的行家都很注重翡翠种的优劣。 翡翠原料， 尤其是做手镯的原料，不怕没有色，就怕没有种。
The concept of variety of jadeite
Kinds of green jade and transparency in general, as well as the structure and form of jade texture, jadeite evaluate the merits of a very important sign. Jade appreciate people attach great importance to select the kind of good jade, some people seem more important than the kind of color is more important, the "outsiders color, experts see variety," said. There inline sentence is "kind of a good cover three ugly", referring to the kind of jade can not only light color of jade is crystal clear beautiful, but not enough to make a uniform color due to mutual mapping and appears even more texture can fine jade seem obvious enough. So experienced experts are focusing on the merits of jade variety.
1, old crater glass variety
The highest level of transparency, the head of the most adequate, since Ying, literal understanding is obtained as transparent as glass, old crater glass kind arguably the most exclusive call jadeite, of course, the old crater glass seed itself still has high and low points of the mid-range .
2, icy variety
Transparency and head slightly inferior to glass variety name implies, transparent like ice, high quality who often charge for the sale of glass types, are high-grade jade. It also has a high middle and low points
3, oil green variety
Oil breeding jadeite green refers to a dark, color is not pure green, mixed with some gray or blue, therefore not bright, its color can be from shallow to deep, because of its shiny surface like oil sheen, so called oil green variety.
4 ice glutinous / waxy variety
Texture between transparent and opaque, like cooked rice, I personally think it is very interesting variety, ice waxy texture is very nice, the same high middle and low points.
5, anthocyanin variety
Anthocyanin variety refers to green distribution as veins, and yet a very irregular jadeite, its background may be pale green or other colors, fine texture can be rough, for example, cyanine bottom beans, its crystal structure coarse grains, beans, called the end of its irregular color, sometimes more intensive distribution, it may be more sparse, can also be shallow depth, and therefore eligible for this type of jadeite known as anthocyanin variety.
6, white green variety
White Burmese jade green variety is widely distributed one, characterized in that the general background than white, of course, sometimes there are some impurities, blue, green and white is more vivid, because even more green than white background clear white, green part of the majority of lumps appear.
7, hibiscus variety
Its color is generally pale green, without yellow, very elegant, look no obvious boundaries of the fiber particles. Although not really clear, but moist and elegant, a kind of refined beauty!
8, Watkins variety
Watkins variety refers to the jadeite color into filamentous distribution, arranged in parallel, we can clearly see the green in a certain direction is intermittent, of course, green strips may be coarse fine. Grade gold variety depends on its jadeite green color and green stripes with the proportion of the number, thickness and texture of the case may be, the color bands crude, accounting for a large proportion of the area, and relatively bright colors.
9, beans variety
Bean seeds is a very image of the title, we know that Jade is a polycrystalline, if the composition of jadeite coarse crystals, such as greater than one millimeter will be easily seen by the naked eye, most of the crude jadeite crystals are short column, when when the boundaries of these short columnar crystal clear, looks like a grain of green beans, so called bean seeds. "Ten Green nine beans" can be seen in the breadth of the beans, beans can be further divided into: jelly beans, ice beans, fine beans, beans .. so coarse high-grade beans is also worth a lot of money.
