Jadeite came only from random surface finds in what is now Myanmar. The mining of jadeite didn't really start until the eighteenth century.
I'll attach a couple of examples. The first is an ear ornament from Vietnam - light green nephrite. The second is from the Samon Valley in Myanmar - light green jadeite. Fairly similar in hue, though different in chemical composition. Both are 1st millennium BCE.
