Buddstone, also known as African Jade or Verdite, is a type of metamorphic rock primarily found in South Africa, particularly in the Limpopo Province. It forms through the alteration of serpentinite and consists mainly of green minerals such as fuchsite, a green variety of muscovite mica, and chlorite. These minerals give Buddstone its characteristic green color, ranging from light to dark shades.

In terms of appearance, Buddstone typically exhibits a mottled or streaked appearance due to variations in mineral composition and texture. It often features swirling patterns or speckles of different shades of green, occasionally interspersed with veins or inclusions of other minerals. Buddstone has a smooth and polished surface when used for carving or sculpting, making it suitable for decorative objects, jewelry, and ornamental carvings.

The color and patterning of Buddstone can vary widely depending on factors such as the specific mineral content, geological conditions during formation, and any post-depositional alteration processes. Despite its name, Buddstone is not a true jade but is often marketed as such due to its resemblance to jadeite and nephrite in appearance.
