Jade is a semi-precious stone best known for its dark green varieties, though it maybe found in a variety of colors. The most common types of jade are jadeite and nephrite. Jadeite is a variety of jade that's primarily composed of silicon, calcium and magnesium while nephrite contains silicon, sodium and aluminum. For thousands of years, jade has been used for ornamental purposes, jewelry and as tools due to its relative strength and durability.
Washington state has now joined over a dozen other states to put in place “shelter in place” or “stay at home” orders. While we agree this is the correct course of action, it will have a substantial impact on our business. It effectively shuts down much of our company for several weeks.
We will continue taking orders on our website and we will have a single staff member at our warehouse to facilitate shipping of these new orders. Depending on the order volume this may mean that we do experience some shipping delays, particularly with large or fragile items that require more packaging time.
These shutdowns are particularly devastating to all small businesses who don’t have significant cash reserves and rely on constant cash flow to pay their fixed expenses (payroll, rent, loan payments, etc) We hope that you will continue to support us and satisfy your fossil fix during these trying times.
