We tested 288 pieces of the polished cabochon jadeite-jade with high quality green and smooth surfaces using the colorimeter Color i5 based on the CIE 1976 L~*a~*b~* uniform color space. The color changes after alternating three CIE standard light sources D_(65),A and CWF were compared,and the degree of metamerism was evaluated. The results show that the CIE standard light sources D_(65),A and CWF increase the chroma of green and turn bluish green into vivid green,which are similar or to nearly colorless and transparent glass-like samples with fine textures. When the three light sources were individually alternated,the lightness of the jadeite-jades showed little change,but the tone changed significantly. Metamerism occurred only in 3 pairs among the 16 samples that were selected by cluster analysis for quality,and the metamerism colors were highly consistent of L~*D_(65)∈(43.47,46.75),C~*D_(65)∈(65.20,68.80) and ho~*D_(65)∈(138.10,140.23). We can conclude that the jadeite-jade green gradually turns to blue when the color temperature of the light source increases. But when considering both the light sources and the samples,D_(65) is more suitable to be the light source of jadeite-jade green when compared with the light sources CWF and A. Compared with the CIE standard green and high chroma green,high-quality jadeite-jade green has a slight yellow tone,low lightness and high chroma. The special metamerism index decreased to 1 when the light source alternated among D_(65),A and CWF. Therefore,the color of jadeite-jade green might be slightly influenced by alternating of the light sources.
