Jade is a rare material with high beauty (on par with silver) but little utility. Sculptures produced with jade can greatly improve their surroundings, while blunt weapons made of jade are tremendously effective. Its curious fragility makes it poorly suited to other situations, however, unless you appreciate its striking green color.
Jade veins occur rarely on most maps, and must be mined before they can be used. Jade can occasionally be found in random cargo pods, and may be purchased from bulk goods traders. Once you've completed the research necessary to construct a deep drill, it can also be found in small deposits underground.
Jade tiles have 1,500 health, making them one of the faster ores to mine. They can be found in small veins, ranging from 1 to 6 tiles in size. Each mined block yields 35 jade, although miners with less than 8 skill in mining will produce significantly less.
Prior to Alpha 17, it was considered a small volume material.
