Instructors, trainers, and coaches for kegel exercise,

: 9 out of 10 "jade egg" suppliers from China and from alibaba are selling fake nephrite jade eggs. If you know what you get is not genuine nephrite jade, then it is ok. However, if what you get is fake jade eggs but you offer these "fake jade eggs" as "nephrite jade eggs" to the women you coach, you are bringing fake and fraud jade eggs to people for this intimate usage and you may be in risk of a troublesome lawsuit.

We reviewed 10 web sites that sell "jade eggs", but only 1 out of 10 has genuine nephrite jade eggs, all others are fake nephrite jade. We also checked "jade eggs" sold at Alibaba and Aliexpress, all but one are fake nephrite jade eggs. Most of these fake nephrite jade eggs are made from serpentine or onyx, 2 variants of marble stone.

There are only 2 types of real jades: nephrite and jadeite. All other types of "jades" are jade simulants.
