The important factors of Chinese antique jade considered by museums are quite different from those considered by private collectors. In my view, historical significance, cultural value, national pride and scientific value of jade are considered most important by museums. To private collectors, jade quality, carving style, motif and condition of the jade are considered most important. In addition, all the antique jades unearthed by the government archaeological team are surely kept in the museums.
