Tomb Jade was the name for jade that had been buried for centuries and turned from green to red or brown.[4][5][6]


Tomb jade was rare and commanded a high price in the Realms.[1][2][3] Normal jade was considered a fancy stone, but after being mined and possibly worked, then buried for great lengths of time, it changed color and was worth ten times as much.[1][2][3] A typical specimen had a base value of 1,000 gp.[1][3] Note that jade turned green if buried with items made of bronze which rendered it equivalent in value to normal jade.[1]


Powdered tomb jade was an ingredient in potions of undead control. It could also be used as a talisman for turning undead, granting a priest a second chance to turn an undead creature after a failed attempt.[5]
