Group Discussion > Image needed: Mutton fat

For the 2nd edition of Secrets Of The Gem Trade I am seeking a high resolution image that gives a good idea of the color of mutton fat jade.

Actually, "mutton fat" is a widely abused term in jade lore. It means much more than just the color, which should have _no_ trace of green. But yet it is _not_ a stark white, either. Just as important is the texture and surface appearance and polish. It's a very hard thing to show in JPEGs, as I find out in my lectures and articles.
