    a sea of pale jade?

    "Perched on a huge granite boulder and extending over the crystal-clear water of the Great Barrier Reef, the villa had louvred glass giving on to a spectacular view of island peaks separated by a sea of pale jade."

    Is it saying those island peaks are separated by pale jade water?
