Jade

Stone of Vision & Dreams

Jade or “yu” (meaning precious stone) as it is called in China, is the family name for Jadeite and Nephrite. The term Jade refers to a fine-grained, mineral aggregate composed of either one or both of two other minerals: Jadeite and Nephrite.  All jade is composed of highly intergrown, interlocking crystals of one or both of these minerals.

Jadeite is a silicate of sodium and aluminium within the pyroxene group, and has a wide range of colors from emerald green (known as Imperial Jade), to all manner of green shades, purples, pinks, red, brown, orange, blue, black, and yellow!  Imperial Jade, the most coveted, is a deep rich green due to the content level of chromium. When polished, Jadeite commonly has a dimpled surface.

Nephrite is a silicate of calcium and magnesium of the amphibole group, and it is often  banded or blotchy, and homogeneous in color. It varies from a dark green (due to iron) to a cream color (which would be high in magnesium) with many shades in between, but no other varying colors.

It is said that in Chinese tradition, Jade symbolized all five virtues of humanity: Wisdom, Compassion, Justice, Modesty and Courage, therefore often symbols of these virtues were carved into pieces of Jade.

Jade

It was long believed for centuries that Jade was but one gemstone. In 1863 that changed. Two types of Jade were recognized, Jadeite and Nephrite.

Jadeite is found in rocks, as pebbles and as boulders; some boulders actually developing a skin of sorts around the Jadeite which is often incorporated into carvings.  Both Myanmar and Guatemala have been found rich with Jadeite, but it is also found in Japan and the western part of the US.

Nephrite’s greatest deposits have been found in many forms in China, Central Asia, and later in Myanmar; later to be discovered in Russia, Siberia, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico, and the USA, among others.

 

Jade Mystical Properties

Jade

Jade as a gemstone has much history, being part of Asian life and philosophy for many centuries. It is most often considered a symbol of purity and serenity. It is believed to bring harmony, friendship, and to attract good luck.

Although a ‘receptive’ stone, Jade is also known for its protective abilities; warding against negative energies that may surround one.  A stone that is helpful in attaining one’s goals by instilling resourcefulness, allowing one to see past any self imposed limitations, and assisting in the manifestation of one’s dreams into the physical world.

Jade is considered a very lucky gemstone, often facilitating peace and harmony in the four aspects of one’s life: Physical, Emotional, Mental and Spiritual. When these aspects work together in harmony and peace, one’s goals become easier to imagine, manifest, attain and maintain.

Said to promote courage, compassion, generosity, wealth, and longevity. To assist one in living a richer and more fulfilling life.
