Why Jade Market is special ?

This heaving grid of cramped walkways is a shoulder-to-shoulder mass of jade traders. You don’t need to pay the $1 entry (not always enforced) to observe interesting scenes of craftsmen cutting and polishing jade pieces just outside along the market’s eastern flank (87th St). Or retreat to the octagonal Unison Teahouse to watch furtive-looking jade merchants discussing deals over a cuppa.

Visited here at 2pm on a Friday afternoon and thought that it was closed as most stalls were closed up with people eating, sleeping or playing pool. On further investigation we found a gem market dealing in gems, jade workers making bracelets and carving jade and sorting the original jade rock pieces. We bought from a lovely old lady with great English near the front entry. She took the time to explain the difference between different quality pieces and showed us the difference between a $30 bangle and a $300 one. I learnt a great deal and came away with a really lovely piece.
