Is jadeite from Burma banned from the United States?

The Tom Lantos Block Burmese JADE (Junta's Anti-Democratic Efforts) Act of 2008 prohibits United States imports of jadeite and ruby from Myanmar, even if the gems are processed in, and exported from, another country. The ban does not apply to gems imported for personal use or prevent U.S. sales of Burmese gems already in the United States.
