These characteristics make jadeite particularly suitable for LDI. Identification of jadeite is not always easy with the naked eye, and the more general term of “jade” has been used rather loosely, producing ambiguity in many parts of the world. Recent scientific analyses using spectroradiometry in Europe (Errera et al. 2006) and X-ray fluorescence analysis in Japan (Warashina 1988) have successfully clarified the actual distribution of jadeite and attest to long-distance interactions of roughly the same scale in Neolithic Europe and Jomon Japan.
