Alaskan Jadeite

Hello, I’m looking for some advice, I have this 20 pound piece of Alaskan Jadeite that I am hoping to sell. Does anyone have any suggestions on where I might be able to sell it? Also am I better off trying to sell it whole or cut it into pieces? Thank you in advance for any help here.

There are no jadeite deposits in Alaska, only nephrite, and your big slab seems to be quite low quality.

I have some Alaskan Nephrite and I’m wondering how valuable it is.

In Alaska, there is no Jadeite and there never was.
Only Hephrite and not the best quality.
In your case, the material, no offense, is suitable for a maximum of caskets or cladding of something for decoration.
Doesn’t matter jewelry.
