What is Jade?
Jade is a powerful crystal that has been revered all over the world for centuries. The ancient tribes of the British Isles used it for weapons, and in the pre-colonial Americas, Jade featured prominently in religious ceremonies. China’s love affair with this stone is well-known, and Chinese art and medicine have long celebrated Jade’s beauty and healing powers.
The term “Jade” refers to two different minerals: Nephrite and Jadeite. Both share a distinctive green color and carry the same healing, metaphysical, and spiritual properties. Nephrite is a form of Calcium Magnesium Silicate, and Jadeite is a rarer and more expensive variety of Sodium Aluminum Silicate. In its translucent and emerald-colored form, Jadeite is known as “Imperial Jade,” the most highly prized Jade stone. To tell whether your Jade stone is Nephrite or Jadeite, tap it with a hard object; Nephrite will chime like a musical instrument, but Jadeite will not.
Seventh century philosopher Khivan Ghung believed that Jade was the physical expression of the nine human virtues: Benevolence, Knowledge, Righteousness, Charity, Purity, Endurance, Ingenuity, Morality, and Musicality. These qualities meant that Jade was a stone blessed by the divine. Modern crystal healers and collectors value Jade for its calming, nurturing, and abundance properties.
