Greenstone is a very hard stone and must be worked with care and patience. Often diamond tools are needed to carve it and it can be turned into beautiful jewellery.
A visit to the Jade Factory is an eye opening experience. You could see the designers at work carving those jades into beautiful piece of art and jewellery. Bring a piece home as souvenir for the ladies ;p
We visited the Jade Factory just below our Mountain Jade Backpackers at the town centre. Produce your room key and get a 10% discount on all items purchased at the shop.
