The One and Only Ice Synthesis Jadeite in the world ─ Inventions From Dr. Ko-Chen Fang
Dr. Ko-Cheng Fang is a founder of LongServing Technology, and he is an artist and a scientist. He is also the inventor of first synthetic icy jadeite in the world. He has many domestic and foreign patents and won many international invention awards. In 2015, he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from International American University (IAU).
The origin of inventing synthetic jadeite
Four of the five most famous gemstones in the world have already been synthesized, but it can not be synthesized the jadeite which Chinese people love mostly. Because of this, I have began to develop gem-grade synthetic jadeite many years ago. In 2011, the developed synthetic jadeite has successfully detected the composition of pyroxene by Central Geological Survey of the Ministry of economy! However, in order to avoid affecting the livelihood of miners in Myanmar and both the rights and interests of natural jadeite collectors, I didn’t put into production of the synthetic jadeite immediately.
The chance to produce synthetic jadeite
In 2021, the Myanmar government announced that the mining of natural jadeite ore was completely stopped. From the market point of view, this is the best time to introduce the synthetic jadeite, which will bring another investment opportunity to the jadeite market. According to the online transaction amount of jadeite trading market in 2020, it is nearly RMB 230 billion, that is, about NT $1 trillion. Although there are many jadeite mines, most of the jadeite varieties traded in the market are dry goods, peas species and green-flower species. The superior old-mine variety of imperial jade which refers to one kind of the superior flawless jade is very rare.
A new variety of synthetic jadeite - Symbiosis minerals of "albite jade and pyroxene jade"
The best and flawless old-mine jadeite refers to the good variety with good water and full green with “Chromium”. Nevertheless, this kind of top-quality jadeite at the imperial-jade level is not only almost extinct in the market, but value at least tens of millions of RMB. It is absolutely difficult for people to buy and collect it! Therefore, I think if the synthetic jadeite becomes the main force of consumption in the market, it should not be caviar to the general. It must obtain both popular and of high quality characters. This shows that we should start with "variety“ of synthetic jadeite and the variety selection is particularly important. To segregate from the natural jadeite market, it is necessary to create a new variety that is affordable to the public, so I noticed the characteristics of the symbiotic minerals of “albite jade and pyroxene jade”. This variety is much more affordable. Albite jade is usually either colorless or within a little blue flower, and pyroxene jade has the same properties as sodium pyroxene jade in the ice species. Therefore, I used a “mixture” to deliberately retain the unique glistening effect of jadeite, the cotton -fiber crystal structure of pyroxene jade can be displayed under the sunshiny. It sacrifices its specific gravity and part of the refractive index but retains the hardness of gem-level 6 to 7 for easy cutting and grinding! Coupled with the perfect full chromium color, this synthetic jadeite has “the beauty of a imperial jade, the seductive brilliance of an emerald, and the glistening effect of a natural jadeite”. I personally believe it is a very perfect presentation. Besides, it will be a perfect and excellent treasure into artwork or wearing accessories after he sculptors exquisitely carve.
Compliant with Raman spectrum verification - Quality Assurance
I believe that such gem-grade synthetic jadeite will become a new brand in the market, and it also brings new business opportunities to gemstone manufacturers, but not selling dry goods or jade seeds with poor color roots. In fact, the synthetic jadeite analysis results in Raman spectrum shows as expected. It uniquely show both the characteristics of two symbiotic minerals in “refractive index” and “spectrum”. The “full chromium” color (chromium is the main component with a small amount of iron) is also the best color component of minerals such as in jadeite, and it also as the expectations. This will be different from the inferior dyed jade or pickling jade on the market, which is commonly known as B goods or C goods. It is the best guarantee for consumers, collectors or investors!
Chelsea filter detection
The Chelsea filter uses the absorption of specific wavelengths according to the spectrum principle to distinguish the type of gemstones, and can also test whether certain gemstones have been processed optimally. The Chelsea filter consists of two color filters that only allow transmission of red frequency and green frequency light. It is very effective for identifying dyed jadeite, dyed gemstones and artificial gemstones.
For example, jadeite dyed with artificial chromium salts turns red under the Chelsea filter, while natural jadeite usually does not change color, indicating non-dyed jadeite. Our synthetic jade does not change color when tested with a Chelsea filter, proving that the quality of our synthesis jadeite is undyed and just like natural jade.
UV light detection
This UV light identification method is widely used in jade testing. UV light is used to identify the authenticity of jade based on the fluorescence characteristics emitted from jade under long-wavelength 365nm or short-wavelength 253.7nm UV light irradiation. Inferior jade that has been under the acid treatment and filled with the polymer resin will show a fluorescent reaction under UV light irradiation. Natural jadeite generally does not emit fluorescence under UV light because it does not contain polymer resin and wax. Our synthetic jadeite crystallized under simulating natural conditions and has no fluorescent reaction when exposed to ultraviolet light, proving that our products have no polymer resin added.
“Multi-bit optical computing system” and “Synthetic icy jadeite” developed by Ko-Cheng Fang, the chairman of LongServing Technology, won the 17th Golden Torch Awards for the top ten innovative design of the year, and were awarded the "Golden Torch Award" crystal trophy and a certificate of selection. Besides, Chairman Fang was awarded as a professional committee member of computer technology.
The "Golden Torch Award" is held by the Outstanding Enterprise Manager Association (OEMA). It is an enterprise selection activity to assist the government in discovering, promoting innovation and entrepreneurship, enhancing international competitiveness, praising domestic excellent enterprises and enterprise managers, and promoting corporate culture and image building. In order to make the event more objective, fair, and representative, OEMA invited the chairmen of various guilds and scholars from various professional fields to form a jury. After more than six months of strict selections including an initial examination, a re-examination, and a final examination, it strictly selects excellent enterprises with extremely high indicators.

It changes the traditional binary algorithm (0 and 1) into multi-bit algorithm. It will change the future technology and improve the speed of computer computing, and the computer, electronics, aerospace industry, and national defense industry will be all influenced. This will make human technology enter a revolutionary progress, which will enable computers to perform at a high speed with multi bits, and enable future robots to have the artificial intelligence of supercomputers.
“Synthetic icy jadeite” is a unique technology in the world. The synthetic jadeite created by LongServing has “the beauty of an imperial jade, the seductive brilliance of an emerald, and the glistening effect of a natural jadeite.” This synthetic technology successfully challenges the natural icy jadeite.
Both the two above technologies will make great contributions to mankind, help the industry to upgrade rapidly and benefit people.
The world-leading synthetic jadeite technology from LongServing creates a synthetic jadeite with not only having the beauty with imperial jade level but also showing the emerald-like seductive brilliance. This is the greatest creation ever made by human being, successfully challenging the synthetic technology that has reached the level of high-grade natural ice jadeite.
At present, the best and flawless imperial-level top-quality jade from Laokeng variety not only almost extincts in the market, but its value is tens of millions of RMB. It is difficult for most people to buy and collect it! Therefore, the founder, Dr. Ko-Chen Fang, thinks that the synthetic jadeite should not only become the main consumption in the market, but also have high quality and be popular to the general. Hence, Dr. Fang made a breakthrough and started from "variety" to create a new variety, symbiotic minerals of “jadeite and Shuimozi,” that is affordable to the public.
The mineralogy name of jadeite and Shuimoz are pyroxene jade and albite jade, respectively. This variety is much more affordable. The "mixture" used by Dr. Fang preserves the unique glistening effect of jadeite, and the cotton-fiber crystal structure of pyroxene jade can be displayed under the sun. This sacrifices its specific gravity and part of the refractive index but retains the hardness of gem-level 6 to 7 for easy cutting and grinding! Coupled with the perfect full chromium color, this synthetic jadeite has “the beauty of a imperial jade, the seductive brilliance of an emerald, and the glistening effect of a natural jadeite.”
As the data comparison table shown, the synthetic jadeite matches the expected results after Raman spectroscopy analysis. The characteristics of two symbiotic minerals appear in the "refractive index" and "spectrum", which are the uniqueness of the new species. The "full chromium" color (mainly chromium with a small amount of iron) is the best color component of jadeite, which is also in line with the expectations.
This will be different from the inferior dyed jade or pickling jade on the market, which is commonly known as B goods or C goods. Such gem-quality synthetic jadeite will become a new variety in the market, and brings new business opportunities to gemstone manufacturers. It is the best guarantee for consumers, collectors or investors.
A Data Comparison Table of Synthetic Jadeite, Natural Albite and Natural Jadeite
In the laboratory, we simulate the topography of the surrounding rocks in the natural environment as the crystalline growth environment of the raw ore. The mineral materials of natural jadeite are mixed into a special customized mold, and the temperature and pressure are designed as the same as the natural environment to grow the jadeite crystal. After the crystallization is completed, the finished-product is equivalent to jadeite ore.
In the jadeite market, high-end collectible jadeites are basically kept as family heirlooms.There are fewer and fewer high-quality jades on the market, and it is expected that jadeites will have greater room for appreciation. As in the high-end auction collection market, jadeite remains popular and is favored by many collectors.
Over the centuries, with the vigorous development of the craft technology and jewelry industry, jadeite, known as the “King of Jade”, has the increased demand for decoration and collection. However, the conditions for the formation of natural jadeite in nature are extremely harsh which makes its supply difficult to meet people’s demand. Therefore, the development of synthetic jadeite has the great benefit to resolve the problem of insufficient supply of natural jadeite. It can not only promotes the high yield of jadeite, but accelerates its marketization process.
In 2014, the output value of Myanmar's jadeite mine was about 31 billion US dollars, which is nearly the half of Myanmar's GDP. There is less and less Myanmar's natural jadeite, but it's still half of Myanmar's total income. This is because the market demand is much higher than its output, and the high-priced jadeite from Myanmar become more and more exhausted, so the high-value jadeite are worth more. It's just in short supply with no stock! Besides, jadeite is not merely loved by the Eastern. The Westerners are just unable to buy them because they are all bought by Eastern buyers.
The rise of the synthetic jadeite industry in the future will make up the gap of natural jadeite mines. The synthetic jadeite from LongServing technology is unique in the market. The quality is comparable to the top-grade Laokeng jadeite, and the product has the advantages of absolute value preservation and added value which is able to provide consumers against inflation. In addition, our synthetic jadeite technology has the characterists of mass producibility, low manufacturing costs and high profitability. The annual revenue may exceed trillions and the net profit estimates as high as 900 billion, which will bring a large job market, high GDP growth and drive the development of related surrounding economies for the country.
Each synthetic jadeite product will be professionally graded by a jewelry and jade appraisal agency and it will attach with "Global Guarantee Card and Serial Number," which represents the unique origin of each synthetic jadeite and protects the rights and interests of buyers.
LongServing Technology has successfully developed synthetic icy jadeite that can be mass-produced. It will surely make up for the gap of natural jadeite mines with the sustainable development. The imbalance situation between supply and demand in the natural jadeite market will be improved. Moreover, the product is of high quality and has no competitors in the market. It has the advantages of the absolute value preservation and added value.
