hydrogrossular

Massive veins of opaque Grossular Garnet that resembles Jade. It is white to light green in color, and may be colored in a white, green, and pink combination. Hydrogrossular is often regarded as a variety of Grossular, but it is scientifically regarded as two distinct individual mineral species that have a slightly different chemical formula than true Grossular. Hydrogrossular is synonymous with the term Hydrogarnet. Other synonyms of Hydrogrossular include Transvaal Jade, African Jade, South African Jade, and Garnet Jade.
See the mineral page on Hydrogarnet for more information.
