    komokwa The Truth is out there...!

    Nephrite can be found in a translucent white to very light yellow form which is known in China as mutton fat jade

    I'm not seeing that here.....IMO.!
    your's lack that oily white look ...... but..

    this is something that's hard to tell from photo's....even professional ones..

    Nowhere near mutton fat jade.:( Komo posted an excellent example of mutton fat jade, whitish, with that soft, velvety-creamy look.
    I'm with kyra, bowenite, which is a variety of serpentine.
