To know if the jade was real, of course it should be tested by refraction.
The fire had to be quite intense for gold to melt.
And jade doesn't like heat. Jade likes cool temperatures and moistness. The shops where I bought jade in China did not have lights on until they were turned on for a customer, or other reason. And there were bowls of water around the jade to give it moisture.
I live in central Florida, and it has been unseasonably heat the past few weeks. My regular every day jade bangle bracelet felt too heavy, so I changed to a more slender and lighter color jadeite bangle bracelet a couple of days ago. I keep all of the jade that is listed on the web site, and those jades in inventory in a very cool room, in boxes or closet to keep it dark. Often customers will tell me that when they receive their jade, they're not sure it was the one they ordered because the color seemed bland, but then they put it on and wear it and their body and qi energy improve the color and give it a glow. When jade bangles are being photographed and listed, they are often on my wrist, or nearby in a room temperature area for the weeks I am working with them, and the color is at its best.

Although jade likes coolness, none of my jade has been damaged during the many hot months during the year when I wear it outdoors, in the pool with chlorine, or in the hot tub. When I return indoors after being out in the heat, I wash my jade bangle with cool water and hand soap to remove sweat and sunscreen, chlorine from the pool.. Polish it with a soft cloth, and it is in good condition.
I keep pieces of Chinese jade when it breaks, or I receive damaged jade. I use them outdoors and bury them along with the roots of my favorite plants in the landscape. Sometimes the squirrels and other animals dig them up and they are on the top of the soil for a long time. The heat really damages them, the lose their good green color and polish, and look grainy, not even like jade.
So you can wear your every day jade bangle bracelet all day, every day, and it will be fine if you keep it clean. Wear it in the shower or when you bathe. If you enjoy the environment, chances are your jade will enjoy it, too.
