Unfortunately, it seems to be the most common white quartz.

white serpentine jade said by a mineralogist. I sent a sample.
What do you mean by "serpentine Jade"? If its serpentine, its serpentine. If its jade, its jade. These are two independent substances. Serpentine can sometimes be polished to look like jade, but that would be green, not white.
It is a light green under the white oxidation. It is botryoidal nephrite jade. It is common here.
