No one can look at a picture and know that it is Jade for sure, it will have to be tested to know. It looks nice and could be but as I said, it will have to be tested to know for sure.

Thanks for your reply. I know the butterfly is because I cannot scratch it with metal which would be the harder of the 2 kinds of jade, Jadeite. I cannot scratch the pink one either. The elephant and the lion can be forcibly scratched but was wandering if they could be Nephrite Jade.

Real jade also has an oily feel.

The butterfly looks more like serpentine than jade, at least to me.
