In the United States, Jade is a rare mineral that is imported from other parts of the world and processed according to the needs of customers. This is because, up till recently, the Jade stone could not be found in the country. Currently, there is only one mine that extracts this mineral, and the location is still being kept secret. This type of jade is of high value and contains elements of Platinum and Gold.
The industry is yet to be developed because these findings are relatively recent but plans are at an advanced stage to partner with investors in order to reap the full benefits of discovering such a precious and valuable find. Moreover, it has been considered to be among the highest in quality. The region of North-eastern Ohio is home to this welcome discovery and it is said to be available in rich quantities. Having been declassified by the United States Government, the development of the industry will pave the way to brisk business and the country will be able to compete in the world market.
Currently, there is only one factory in the area concerned, whose main focus involves the development of a process that, in addition to making jewelry will also benefit the disciplined forces by combining it with ceramics to produce life-saving products. As such the uses of Jade are not restricted to luxury items, but offer a diverse range of opportunities that can benefit a cross-section of the general population. It has also been deemed appropriate for use in nanotechnology extending to other sectors such as energy and electronics.
Due to the relatively higher quantities available in the United States, prices on the world market are expected to drop as it can now be supplied in much larger quantities than was once thought possible. What it means is that more and more people will be able to access this mineral though it remains subject for investigation if this will have a direct bearing on the values of jewelry produced out of Jade. What becomes evident is that with an increase in supply, various industries will be able to tap into a once rare mineral resource that will add value to numerous products around the globe. Conversely, due to the fact that it can easily be extracted, there is bound to be an uninterrupted demand of the commodity that will ensure a stable market price.
As such, the world remains poised to receive an influx of Jade from a highly unlikely source at affordable prices that will make access to a once much sought after mineral easy and affordable. This will enhance and improve the development and the production of top quality products at a fraction of the cost. It will also pave way for numerous employment opportunities for the local residents, and the spin-off effects will give rise to satellite businesses within the state. With a number of investors already lined up, it is only a matter of time before Jade becomes a household name.
