The sky is tilted, and Nu Wa picks five colored stones to mend it." "Buzhou mountain" here is Kunlun Mountain, and "wuse stone" is Hetian jade. Strictly speaking, Hotan jade is a major mineral of nephrite, which does not represent all white jade. White jade is called nephrite, which is relative to jadeite.
