The hill is rich in a jade substitute or simulant stone, Saussurite. "Dushan jade"is a misnomer. It is not the true jade found in Xinjiang, China: nephrite, a CaMg silicate (Si), nor the true jade found in Burma: jadeite, a NaAl silicate (Si). It is a fine grained mixture of feldspar and epidote. It is currently marketed under the names, Dushan jade, Swiss jade (1st identified by Swiss mineralogist), and Nanjang jade (Nanyang, Henan Province).
On the third day of the third month of the Chinese calendar, people will climb the mountain.
