Most likely Turkish purple jade will eventually become as scarce—and as costly—as lavender jadeite. The two gemstones are not the same. There is some difference of opinion as to whether it is a jade or a rock, given that the concentration of jadeite in Turkish purple jade is measured between 40% and 60%. Since lavender/purple jade is among the rarest in the world, and Turkish purple jade does not have the luminescence or jadeite concentration of traditional gemstone jades. No matter people seem to be drawn to this stone and rumors are there is no more to be mined.
