Jade is an ornamental stone. Among the earliest known jade artifacts excavated from prehistoric sites are simple ornaments with bead, button, and tubular shapes. As metal-working technologies became available, the beauty of jade made it valuable for ornaments and decorative objects. The use of jade and other greenstone was a long-term tradition in Korea.
