Genuine Jade at Objets D'Art in Corpus Christi, Texas. All of the jade in this album is genuine jadeite. How to Test Jade in an Imperfect World. There are only two types of Jade that are considered real Jade. There is Jadeite which measures between 6.0 and 7.0 on the Mohs Sacale of hardness, and there is Nephrite jade which measures between 6.0 and 6.5 on the Mohs scale of hardness. Other materials, no matter how much they look like jade, are not jade unless they meet this hardness criteria. A pocket knife has a blade which measures approximately 5.0 on up to 5.5 on the mohs hardness scale, thus making the pocket knife an excellent tool for testing jade.
