The photos can't truly show the difference in the jadeite stone between the old and the new:
The newer jadeite bangles are beautiful, well polished, good color and good carving workmanship, but they just don't have the "glow" of the old mine jadeite.

I wore them together for awhile, with two elastic jadeite bead bracelets between them so they wouldn't hit each other, and run the risk of cracking. The "new" jade bangle is thicker inside to outside, has a satisfying "heavy" feel (part of the yang) due to the weight of it.
And then I got sidetracked looking for the jadeite beads bracelets because I want to add them to Jade Heaven web site. You can see in the photo below that they look so nice with any kind of jadeite.
I like to take some photos of the jade bangle bracelets on my wrist, because although they are beautiful in the single photo, being on a human wrist gives them a "glow" due to sharing of jade qi with body qi energy. But I haven't been able to get them on my wrist easily because I burned my wrist, not only once, but twice, while getting food in and out of the oven. And the burns are on the bottom of my thumb knuckle, the tightest part of the wrist when putting on a jade bangle bracelet. I used a thin plastic bag from grocery produce department to put on and take off.

I burn my wrist often when using the oven. If you do, too, you know how that makes putting on and taking off jade bangles painful. And this burn is close enough to my jade bangle that the bangle touches it. I immediately ordered oven rack shields from Amazon, and they have already saved me more burns since I got them three weeks ago.
