Ooo. Jade with a red Heir logo would be very nice. Jade cap with a golden amber shell, perhaps?

On the other hand, you could hypothetically shape them with sufficient inner detail to not need to insert tubing; the lower component could have the tubing pre-formed, requiring final assembly to amount to dropping the filters and drivers into their appropriately-sized holes, and then sealing them with a cap.
 

Check Stereolithography or SLA, some of big companies like UE use them for customs. But as Wizard said it has limitation on material used and colors.On other hand milling machines can do any materials and combinations.

It got hot while you were trying to file the jade thin? Perhaps the tool rotated at too high a speed then?

...or not enough lubrication/water to keep it cool?
