Beijing 2008 Olympic Medals

For this year's 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic games - the gold, silver and bronze medals incorporate a distinctive band of jade. The gold medal has the lighter finer jade, while the silver has the white-greenish jade, and the bronze has the darker green jade.

It's the first time in Olympic history that medals are made of material besides metal. Unique and pretty spectacular!
