Jade can be expensive. If you still want to use the "jade-like" gems, mountain jade is an excellent alternative. Mountain jade, or candy jade, is made from marble stones that go under a series of processes to look like different colors of jade. Since it can be any color, you can get real creative just with this stone for your designs.
