theres different types of grades of jade
This is what i heard when i went on a jade factory tour in china
Jadite is the type when you wear it for 1+ years, it grows a greener if your body is healthy, and darker if your body. This is because jadite still has roots from the original stone, which feed of things which your body produces (e.g body sweat), and thats how its able to tell if your body healthy or not.
You can apparently test if its real jadite by tieing a few strands of hair around the jadiete, and using a lighter and burning the jadite. If the hair burns then it is apaprently not real. Now this... i wouldnt try my self as jadite is expensive...but somebody can trial it if they want
And yeah, theres the test where if its real jade, when you close your hands around the jade for about 10 seconds, if its still cold, then its real and the sound test.
but still.. jade-experts are still best option

If you smash against something really hard, it shouldn't break because Jade is very hard. Over time Jade will become a darker and more rich colour.
