How can you tell if jade is real?

Rub against a piece of cloth and then smell it. If it isn't real it smells like plastic. You can do the same thing with turquoise .

Perform a scratch test. Jadeite is very hard; it will scratch glass or even metal. Nephrite, however, can be much softer, so performing a scratch test improperly may damage a genuine piece. Use the blunt end of a pair of scissors and gently press down and draw a line on an area on the jade piece that is not visible (bottom or end of the piece). Avoid any weathering surfaces because these are much softer and can be easily damaged. If the scratch makes a white line, gently wipe it off (it might be metal residue from the scissors). Is there still a scratch? If so, it's probably not authentic jade. If it scratches glass or steel, it could still be many of the alternatives to jade as well, including the various forms of green quartz and prehnite. Notice: Perform this test at your own risk. The piece may be very valuable, even if it's not made from jade, and can lose significant value if scratched.
