Produced as early as the 1930s, jadeite became hugely popular in the U.S. in the ’40s and ’50s. Although not actually jade, jadeite is colored milk glass for which the inspiration was jade and its name pays homage to the natural gemstone. We can’t quite put our finger on what it is, but there’s something fascinating about jade in general; the milky, opaque pastel color is absolutely stunning, so it’s obvious why people would want to use it and, in turn, collect it, as it presents beautifully. Below are some photos that have been submitted, so take a look at them and maybe you’ll be inspired to add to your collection! And remember, we also love seeing your photos, so go ahead and send those in!
