Mineral and Deposit Landscape
Typical Mineral Locality
With strong tectonism, Mount Kunlun region contains abundant mineral resources, including Kunlin Jade. Due to the warm texture, Kunlun Jade is selected and used in the gold medals for 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
Kunlun Jade is a nephrite and mostly tremolite. Kunlun Jade is discovered in the west bank of Wanbao Valley mouth in the south slope of Shasongwula Mountain of Mount Kunlun at an average altitude of over 4,000m, and is exposed in the petrofabric Carbonatites rock strata of Wanbao Valley Group Qingban Accommodation Station of Mesoproterozoic Erathem. Dolomite and stripped siliceous dolomite, gray-white or light gray-white, are mainly seen. With its veins distributed from the southeast to the northwest, Kunlun Jade is the treasure in Mount Kunlun.
