The two stones that are primarily categorized as jade are nephrite and jadeite. Objects made of jade have been used in China for a very long time. However, only a very small percentage of this jade was jadeite. In the past, the Chinese used the term 'yu' for jade in general and only occasionally bothered to distinguish between chen yu, which was used for nephrite, and fei-ts'ui, which was used for jadeite.
